FSS Fire Extinguisher Information SheetFire Extinguisher Servicing

Building owners and building occupiers are responsible for providing a safe working environment. Fire System Services can relieve the burden by providing a risk assessment service to determine your fire protection requirements and once this is completed, advise on the placement and types of fire extinguishers required to ensure compliance with relevant Australian Standards.

Fire System Services can offer a comprehensive servicing package, which means you can be confident that your fire extinguishers are maintained every six months. Our trained technicians, who are easily identifiable by their uniforms, will regularly visit your premises to ensure that your fire equipment is in proper working order and appropriate to your level of fire risk. In addition, you may rest assured that when the cylinders are due for their 5 yearly pressure test, they will be tested back in our licensed facility.
