Metro Communication is a leader in life safety services specializing in the multi-family industry. In addition to the installation, service and 24-hour monitoring, Metro offers the customer a couple of options for maintaining and inspecting their fire extinguishers. Listed below are the key elements for maintaining, replacing and certifying the onsite fire extinguishers.
Cost effectiveness is an important consideration. Sometimes it is less expensive to replace fire extinguishers with new and certify them. Other times it is better to re-inspect existing fire extinguishers, make required repairs and then certify them. It depends on the age and type of fire extinguisher. Metro will assist you in making the right decision for your situation. By NFPA standards the owner is required to replace fire extinguishers after 12 years.
Metro can provide you with a quote to perform either service. Depending on the number of fire extinguishers in the facility; many owners inform their maintenance staff to replace them and call Metro to certify them. Alternatively, Metro will retrieve all the documented on-site fire extinguishers, perform the required inspection, make all necessary repairs and then certify.
