Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Extinguisher Services

The main reason to keep your fire extinguisher serviced is that it is in working condition in the event of an emergency. You wouldn't want to try to put a fire out to find out that the fire extinguisher doesn't have any pressure in it. That is why when we service fire extinguishers in NYC we properly test them, check the pressure levels and then recharge or refill them when necessary. Aside from that, your insurance company and the FDNY mandates that fire extinguishers are inspected yearly to ensure they are fully serviced. Failure to have your fire extinguishers serviced can result in fines, closures to your business and suspension of i

The FDNY requires yearly tags from fire extinguisher inspections on your fire extinguishers to ensure they are in good-standing condition forbid there was a fire on your property. Some businesses and construction sites require monthly inspections to comply with their insurance.

Portable fire extinguishers are required to have an Annual Fire Extinguisher Service inspection performed by a state licensed inspector like Chase Fire, every year. Additionally, fire extinguishers are required to have maintenance performed on them every 6 years from the manufacture date of the extinguisher.

The Fire Department does not service fire extinguishers, they will perform fire safety inspections on your premises in which the fire extinguishers present must have an up-to-date (within 1-year) fire inspection tag from a certified fire extinguisher inspection service company like Chase Fire.

  • Perform and visually inspect the fire extinguisher for corrosion, rust, dents, and damage.
  • Ensure that the extinguisher has not been used and is still pressurized, by checking the following:Safety pin and tamper seal are still in their placesPressure gauge reading is full — in the green area. (This is not applicable for Co2 fire extinguishers.)
  • Check that the operating instructions on the extinguisher are clear, legible and unobstructed by damage or coverings.
  • Removal of the discharge hose and checking for blockages and corrosion.Once the discharge hose has been removed replacement the ‘O' ring is put in place.
  • Weighing of the extinguisher.If there is more than a 10% weight loss, investigate and recharge.
  • Wipe down the extinguisher.
  • Ensure that the wall mountings are secure and in good condition, and properly placed with clear identification before replacing the fire extinguisher back on the wall.
  • Updating the annual fire extinguisher inspection tag to accurately reflect the state of the extinguisher and the length for which it should be fire-ready for.
  • Hydrostatic Testing
  • Proper Signage and Clear, Clean Instruction Visibility
  • Code Compliance

Nice guys who show up and explain everything they’re doing. I didn’t know what to expect and they were straightforward in billing and overall what they charged us for. Didn’t need to think twice about calling them back for next year they just showed up right in time and got it done without disrupting my business.

Reliable, honest and efficient. Chase Fire comes and services our extinguishers every year. We just had a pop up event in the Hamptons where the fire dept came out and almost shut us down. Chase Fire came out and got us up and running just in time to launch with extinguisher stands and tagged extinguishers. Life savers.

Our business was shut down due to fire code violations implemented at the end of 2014 and we were in a serious panic. The Chase Fire team came right after we called and helped get the violation removed so we could reopen. Their prices were competitive and the service was A+. The whole exchange went smoothly which I attribute to their knowledgeable friendly staff with quick turnaround that has earned Chase Fire my companies business for life.

Last year we were serviced by a company that tricked us into using their service by using a shady telemarketer who pretended to be a fire inspector. We’re glad to have found Chase Fire, they’re honest people who show up for their appointments on time and never charge us a penny over what they quote.

Chase Fire has served my restaurant for a decade. I trust them explicitly for all my fire extinguishers because they’ve always helped me keep my business safe without ever pressuring me to buy more than I need. Every year they show up at around the same time and they inspect and test all the extinguishers in my 4-story restaurant. I’ve never had any issues when we have to use the extinguishers and that’s the way it should be.

I am opening a daycare in Brooklyn and I needed fire extinguishers installed that would not only meet state regulation but also be kept away from tiny hands. Artie, the Chase Technician, was not only extremely knowledgeable on the regulations but worked quickly to get my extinguishers and their emergency cabinets installed. I will be using their services again in the future and I highly recommend them to anyone else looking for <strong>reliable fire safety equipment installed in New York</strong>

Automatic Spot Fire Extinguishers

A spot protection fire extinguisher can be horizontally or vertically mounted and acts as a single unit source with automatic action against fire targeted at a specific area.

Designed to supply supplementary fire protection for some local and total flood applications, MINI-GUARD is designed, tested and constructed to the same high standards as portable extinguishers.

MINI GUARD units can be charged with Multipurpose Dry Chemical or Halotron.

The starting point in selecting the proper fire protection system is considering the type of fire threat that your business most likely faces, and thus the type of extinguishing agent you would need to combat it.


type A: ignited by common combustible materials (e.g. wood, trash, paper, plastics, cloth, rubber)
type B: ignited by oil-based or other flammable liquid materials (e.g. solvents, oil, gasoline, paint)
type C: ignited by the presence of electricity (such as from malfunctioning electronics/wiring, broken motors, controls, electronic appliances)
ABC Fire Extinguishers are the most common because they put out the majority of fires. Specialty fire extinguishers are placement based to deal with the types of fires that some rooms are more likely to have.
There is no one fire extinguisher capable of handling all fire types. Certain extinguishers can only combat one type of fire, or perhaps two. Fire extinguishers can utilize water, foam, dry chemicals or carbon dioxide.


Each kind of fire extinguisher is classified by a different letter on its canister. The A is usually in a green triangle, the B is in a red rectangle and the C is in a blue circle. Below are the most common types of fire extinguishers on the market:
Water extinguishers are only effective against type A fires.
Foam fire extinguishers can extinguish cooking oils and fats from kitchen fires, making them noteworthy in kitchen suppression.
Dry chemical extinguishers use different dry powder chemicals, such as sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate or monoammonium phosphate. These versatile fire extinguishers can combat A, B, and C fires.
Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers use carbon dioxide gas to put out flames, and work best against B & C fires.
Stay safe!
