Fire Extinguisher inspections

Requirements 
  • Requirements All fire extinguishers must be hung off the ground. if a fire extinguisher is found on the ground it will be hung up. Fire extinguishers must meet federal and provincial fire code. 

During the standard fire extinguisher inspection: 

 

The gauge is inspected:we are ensuring the dial is in the green zone,not below or under.

 

We review the date of manufacture along with the last/most recent recharge, this information is recorded. If the fire extinguisher has not been recharged in the last 6 years then it is either due for 6 year maintenance or hydro-static testing (once every 12 years). There are also certain fire extinguishers that are legally required to be condemned before a certain year of manufacture.

Information is recorded in the technician's log. This information will be location, serial number, type, year, last recharge, model etc. This is then entered into a database so that at your next fire inspection you will be informed of services required.

Fire extinguisher is maintained.

If the extinguisher does not need to be recharged it goes through a yearly maintenance. The seal around the pin will be broken and resealed, the extinguisher will be wiped down and the tag will either be replaced or have the correct information recorded on it with respect to the current inspection. Last of all the extinguisher will be cleaned by the technician.

 

Requirements:

All fire extinguishers must be hung off the ground. If a fire extinguisher is found on the ground it will be hung up. All fire extinguishers must meet federal and provincial fire code.

emergency lighting inspections

Requirements 
  • All buildings must have emergency lights unless the building has a backup generator. All buildings must have exit lights that must always be illuminated. All emergency light packs may not exceed the number of remote lamps based on a power output calculation.

During a standard emergency lighting inspection:

 

The power to the emergency light/exit light is shut off. Emergency lights need to pass a 30 minutes run time test. Thus the first move for every technician is to turn on the lights.

The battery dates will be checked. If they exceed five years, or if they do not have a date on them, they must be replaced. In this situation, the emergency light is turned off and the battery is changed.

 

Information is recorded in the technician's log such as: location, model, battery size, battery quantity, battery date, battery type, voltages, and power output.

Emergency light/exit light is maintained

The emergency light is cleaned off, a sticker with information regarding the inspection is put on the emergency light. The technician checks to make sure there are no burnt-out lights in the system. Exit lights are tested for bulb back up and their light bulbs in general.

supPression systems

common suppression system inspections include: 
  • kitchen
  • industrial
  • offroad vehicles
Requirements: 
All fire suppression systems must have a welded hood, have a warning sticker on the hood, must be tested every 6 months, and must have correct nozzle flow pertaining to each kitchen appliance under its respective nozzle.

During an inspection, the fire alarm is disabled (if applicable):

 

All suppression systems are hooked up to the building's fire alarm (if the building has a fire alarm). As the fire suppression test involves setting off the system's mechanisms it is desirable to disable the fire alarm. The fire suppression system is disabled, this will prevent the system from going off.

 

Information is recorded in the technician's log. This information will be location, serial number, type, year, last recharge, model, etc. This is then entered into a database so that at your next fire inspection you will be informed of services that must be done and can prepare for them.

 

The fire suppression system is maintained and tested. The fusible links and applicable hooks will be replaced in the system. Nozzles will be tested for airflow and be cleaned. If the system is pressure activated then a new pressurized cylinder will be replaced. The system pull-station is maintained. The system mechanisms are then tested, from the pull-station and from the links, to assure proper activation and the system will be put back together and reset.

fire alarm systems

  • Monthly & Annual Fire Alarm Panel Inspections
  • Fire Alarm Panel Verification
  • Quarterly Duct Smoke Detector Inspections
  • Device Testing and Verification

During a fire alarm inspection, the fire alarm monitoring and bell zones are disabled. Disabling the monitoring during the inspection is imperative as the alarm will be set off regularly and the monitoring station needs not to call the fire department. The bell zones are deactivated so that the bells will not be ringing all day.

The fire alarm panel is maintained:

The batteries are checked following our standard for emergency light batteries. The panel must withstand a five-minute bell test running off the batteries. The LED indicators are checked to make sure that none of them are out. Fire alarm panels must be replaced in the event that anyone part of its electronics is faulty or otherwise deficient.

Devices are tested and recorded:

Devices such as smoke and heat detectors are tested through the fire panel, after which information is recorded about each device as to whether it is working or not.

Bell test:

All signal devices are tested during the bell test, during which the technician will set off the bells and go to each bell to assure that it is working.

Monitoring station test:

The technician will reconnect the fire alarm and set up a test with the monitoring station for the fire alarm signals.
