Lunch was over.
I was walking back to our senior common room with my friends. When we reached Foundation House, we found all of the students and teachers standing outside while the fire brigade trailed in.
There was no smoke or visible flames but I saw three friends that we’d left in the common room off to one side of the car park looking sheepish.
Turns out that they’d managed to make a pseudo-napalm launcher out of a tube of Pringles, a rubber band, spray deodorant, a lighter, and a supply of biro casings.
My friends were smart but, as you might’ve guessed, had no common sense.
Whether you have students setting off fire alarms with molten flaming plastic or have a much larger accident, it’s important to know that your safety measures are up to standard.
$25 billion in damages were caused by fire in 2018 in the US alone, which should tell you how vital it is to catch fires and deal with them early before they need additional help to contain.
That’s why fire extinguisher inspections are so important.
In this post I’ll cover:
- What is a fire extinguisher inspection?
- How often do fire extinguishers need inspecting?
- Who can inspect fire extinguishers?
- Perform free monthly inspections with Process Street
Let’s get started.
