Fire extinguisher replacement is essential to the safety of both consumers and employees in a commercial setting. In restaurants the risk of a kitchen fire makes the need for properly functioning fire extinguishers even more important. Making sure your fire extinguishers are in good condition is necessary to pass the Boston Fire Department’s safety inspection.
Fire extinguisher replacement is essential to the safety of both consumers and employees in a commercial setting. It is imperative for any establishment to have a fire extinguisher that has not only passed inspection but is the appropriate type of fire extinguisher that is designed to put out specific types of fires. It is also extremely important that all employees know how to properly operate a fire extinguisher.
When operating a fire extinguisher, tell residents to remember the word PASS:
- Pull the pin, point the nozzle away from you and release the locking mechanism
- Aim at the base of the fire
- Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly
- Sweep the nozzle side-to-side
Restaurants typically use a multipurpose fire extinguisher that is designed to put out a number of different types of fires including fires common to restaurants. The multi-purpose fire extinguishers are equipped to handle fires from wood, cloth, paper, plastic, flammable liquids and electrical fires from wiring. The extinguishers use a specially fluidized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical to fight against fires.
