Serving the Bay Area since 1980
At Nickell Fire Protection we specialize in a wide variety of fire extinguishers. From traditional fire extinguishers to more specialized fire suppression systems we can sell, service, or install them all. If you are a new business needing to install new fire extinguishers or in need of your monthly or yearly inspections we make the process hassle-free.
Fire extinguishers should be visually inspected every month. This can be done by you, or a member of your staff. While visual inspections are fairly quick and easy, many customers have us handle these inspections. By handling these inspections we provide not only an experienced eye but documentation that your fire extinguishers are in working condition.
An annual inspection is mandated by state codes. For the annual inspection, we come to your place of business and inspect every fire extinguisher. Each extinguisher is visually inspected and weighed. We examine the body for any damage or defect, perform a pressure check, verify the safety seal is still in place, and check all components to ensure proper functionality. Finally, we replace all service tags. We also verify the extinguisher is of the correct type for the area, as well as the hazard it is protecting against. It is vital to use the proper extinguisher for a specific hazard.
