A fire extinguisher is an active fire protection device used as a first aid measure to extinguisher or control small fires, often in emergency situations. The Fire Services Acts 1981 & 2003 and The Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007 requires that extinguishers be installed in all premises and are inspected and maintained at least yearly in accordance with the requirements of Irish standards: I.S.291:2015.
Annett Fire Prevention can service and maintain your extinguishers in compliance with fire safety regulations. It is recommended that you follow a structured servicing plan. We will arrange to undertake the necessary maintenance whenever it is due and advise of any additional requirements your equipment or premises may need to ensure compliance with current standards.
