Whether you need a Class K extinguisher in your kitchen or you need to outfit an entire building with fire extinguishers, our fire extinguisher experts can help you out. Our fire protection specialists will review your facility to match your fire extinguishers’ type, size, and placement to your needs and national fire protection standards.

We offer all kinds of portable fire extinguishers from quality manufacturers such as Amerex, Ansul, Badger, and Buckeye. However, placing fire extinguishers is only the start. We also provide continued inspections and maintenance to ensure the safety of your people and property.

Just having a fire extinguisher isn’t enough to ensure the safety of your people and property. An astounding 30% of portable fire extinguishers in the workplace are not in good working order. And just because yours has an updated inspection tag doesn’t mean it’s ready for an emergency. Make sure that you’re ready by working with a company you can trust. We don’t take shortcuts, and we don’t take chances with your safety.
If a fire extinguisher is damaged or empty, you can contact Koorsen, where we will recharge it, repair it or replace it based on its condition.

Additionally, Koorsen Fire & Security also provides fire extinguisher training for businesses, so their employees are prepared in the event of a fire, and your business stays OSHA compliant. Training includes classroom instruction and hands-on experience unlocking and using an extinguisher to put out a real fire or a digital fire simulation, depending on your needs and location.

What is a fire extinguisher and why is it important?

A fire extinguisher is a handheld device that contains a chemical or other agents that can be used to extinguish small fires. They are important because they can help to put out a fire before it becomes too large, preventing damage to property and injury to people.

How does a fire extinguisher work?

Fire extinguishers work by using a combination of pressurized chemicals or agents that can smother or cool a fire, cutting off its oxygen supply and extinguishing the flame. The most common types of fire extinguishers are water, foam, CO2, dry chemical, and wet chemical.

How often do fire extinguishers need to be inspected and maintained?

Fire extinguishers should be inspected and maintained annually by a certified technician. In addition, they should be checked monthly to ensure that they are in proper working condition, including checking the pressure gauge, ensuring that the pull pin is in place, and ensuring that the extinguisher is not blocked or obstructed.

What are the different types of fire extinguishers and what are they used for?

There are several types of fire extinguishers: water, foam, CO2, dry chemical, and wet chemical.

What happens if a fire extinguisher is not working or not easily accessible?

If a fire extinguisher is not working or not easily accessible, it may not be able to be used effectively in the event of a fire. This can lead to a fire spreading and causing more damage and potential injury. It is also a violation of fire code regulations and can result in fines or penalties.
