Monthly Fire Extinguisher Inspections

Ensuring Fire Safety

The Crucial Role of Monthly Fire Extinguisher Inspections

At Alltron, we recognize that fire safety is paramount. That’s why we adhere to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) guidelines, which mandate monthly inspections for fire extinguishers. These regular checks serve as a proactive measure to maintain operational readiness. By ensuring that our fire extinguishers are easily accessible, in good working condition, and ready for use, we enhance our ability to respond swiftly in case of a fire emergency. Our commitment to safety extends beyond compliance—it’s about safeguarding lives and protecting the spaces we inhabit. Trust Alltron for comprehensive fire safety solutions.

The monthly inspection typically includes the following steps:

Visual Inspection

  • Check the fire extinguisher’s location to ensure it is accessible and unobstructed.

  • Inspect the pressure gauge to verify that it is within the acceptable range.

  • Examine the safety pin and tamper seal to ensure they are intact.

  • Inspect the hose or nozzle for any damage or blockage.

  • Verify that the operating instructions and labels are legible.

Tag and Record Keeping

  • Ensure that the inspection tag is up-to-date and properly filled out.

  • Record the inspection date, findings, and any corrective actions taken.

Physical Exmination

  • Visually inspect the fire extinguisher for any signs of damage, corrosion, or wear.

  • Ensure that the handle and lever are in good condition.

  • Look for any visible leaks or signs of discharge.

  • Check the weight of the extinguisher to confirm it is within the specified range.


  • Maintain accurate records of all inspections, including dates and details.

  • Keep track of any maintenance or repairs performed.

These routine inspections are not mere formalities; they are our proactive stance against fire hazards.

These regular checks allow for early detection of issues—whether it’s a corroded valve, a damaged hose, or a tampered safety pin. By identifying these problems promptly, we ensure that our fire extinguishers remain functional during emergencies.
