Fire Extinguishers

Fire ExtinguisherWe require all apartments and commercial buildings to have fire extinguishers (minimum 2.5-pound ABC extinguisher with indicating gauge in apartments and 5-pound ABC extinguishers with indicating gauge in commercial buildings) accessible. Each apartment unit must have at least one extinguisher. In commercial buildings, the number of extinguishers required depends on the occupancy of the building.  Please contact us for specific on commercial building fire extinguisher requirements. 

We also recommend that all single-family homes have fire extinguishers available.   

Purchase, service and repair 

You can purchase a fire extinguisher at many local home improvement stores and online. Fire extinguishers should be maintained and inspected each year to ensure they are in working condition.
