It is vitally important that Fire Extinguishers maintain their functionality and adhere to your legal responsibility. First Intervention Team provide Fire Extinguisher Servicing and Maintenance that will inspect each fire extinguisher to check it is fully functioning or not and make sure it will work correctly in an emergency situation. We have a highly experienced team of professional engineers to carry out fire extinguisher maintenance.

Any item of safety equipment needs regular checking to ensure it works first time every time when needed. This includes your fire fighting equipment. It must be maintained in accordance with the recognised British Standard. (BS 5306 part 3 2003) and this states that a fire extinguisher must be serviced “…at least annually”.

Fire extinguisher maintenance should only be carried out by a “competent person”, someone with the necessary training, qualification, experience, tools, refilling equipment and manufacturer’s documentation.
