Fire Extinguisher Servicing
Alpine Pye-Barker Fire & Safety
For your convenience, Alpine Pye-Barker Fire & Safety provides inspection, service, and maintenance for extinguishers locally on Orcas Island at least once a month. Some fire extinguishers can be refilled or serviced. Fire extinguishers with a plastic head can only be inspected, they cannot be serviced or refilled.
To schedule an appointment please call Chris Vance at 360-202-5972.
Important: Most extinguishers must be recharged after each use.
An inspection is a quick check to give reasonable assurance that a fire extinguisher is available, fully charged and operable. Based on individual needs, inspections should be conducted when extinguishers are initially placed in service and once a year thereafter, to make sure the pressure gas is in the “green zone.” If not, your extinguisher needs to be serviced.
Fire extinguishers should be maintained when indicated by an inspection. Maintenance is a thorough check of the extinguisher, to give maximum assurance that an extinguisher will operate effectively and safely. It includes a thorough examination and any necessary repair, recharging or replacement. It will also determine if there is a need for hydrostatic testing of an extinguisher.
