Fire Extinguishers

EH&S provides and maintains dry chemical and CO2 fire extinguishers in all state buildings on each of the campuses.

Fire Extinguisher Service

An outside contractor performs monthly inspections. Annual inspections are conducted by EH&S Staff.  EH&S also performs all the service work associated with fire extinguishers (re-filling dry chemical, CO2 and water, replacing, remounting, hydro-testing, etc.). The number of extinguishers that are maintained changes frequently (units added as new buildings/spaces come online, older extinguishers removed from services, etc.).


Contact EH&S to arrange fire extinguisher training for your staff or department.
