Portable fire extinguishers must be tested at least once a year by a competent person. In addition, regular checks should be carried out to ensure that extinguishers are not obstructed and are readily available for use at all times.
Hosereels must be tested at least once annually to ensure that they are in good working order and will produce a satisfactory jet of water at least 6m (20 ft).
The servicing, use and replacement of firefighting equipment should be recorded. Provision is made in our fire safety log book for this purpose.
