Fire extinguisher supply and installation 

We’re able to assist in choosing the right fire extinguishers for your premises, offering a comprehensive supply and installation service with a free quotation. Not all fire extinguishers are made for the same purpose, so chat with our expert technicians to find out more about the right equipment for your property. For example, if a fire was to break out in an office, it would most likely be an electrical fire and the best extinguisher would be a CO2 type.

Fire extinguisher maintenance contract 

Regular fire extinguisher maintenance is essential in providing you with confidence that your equipment is ready when you need it. At Dragon Fire & Security Systems, we offer maintenance reminders and are able to arrange service engineers to check on your extinguishers. Unless extinguishers are properly maintained, they may not perform as needed during a fire. After an extinguisher has been used, even only partially, it must be recharged or replaced. All extinguishers should be fully serviced annually. 

Service engineers

Our fully qualified UK Fire Association-approved service engineers offer extensive experience and knowledge of all things fire safety. We service all makes of fire extinguishers and carry out free surveys when required. Each of our friendly and helpful engineers carry a variety of spares along with the tools for repairs and maintenance. 

Fire training 

No safety plan is complete without adequate fire extinguisher use training. Fires are stressful, so be sure to know how to protect yourself and your property. Our qualified technicians specialise in training you and your staff in proper courses of action during a fire or workplace emergency. Witnessing the technique required to wield a loaded fire extinguisher during a controlled live fire demonstration makes the process seem like second nature. 

Using your extinguisher

Before using your fire extinguisher, be sure to read the instructions. Although there are various types of extinguishers, all operate in a similar manner. Use this acronym as a reference - even print and pin it next to your extinguisher for quick access. 
PASS
 Pull the Pin at the top of the extinguisher. The pin releases a locking mechanism and will allow you to discharge the extinguisher.

 Aim at the base of the fire, not the flames. This is important - in order to put out the fire, you must extinguish the fuel.

 Squeeze the lever slowly. This will release the extinguishing agent in the extinguisher. If the handle is released, the discharge will stop.

 Sweep from side to side. Using a sweeping motion, move the fire extinguisher back and forth until the fire is completely out. Operate the extinguisher from a safe distance, several feet away, and then move towards the fire once it starts to diminish. Be sure to read the instructions on your fire extinguisher - different fire extinguishers recommend operating them from different distances. Remember: aim at the base of the fire, not at the flames!
Your fire extinguishers will only work effectively and be in full working order if they have been regularly checked and serviced by a qualified and competent service engineer.
