Fire Extinguisher Service for Property Managers and High-Rise Buildings in the Seattle, Tacoma, and Puget Sound area.
Businesses located in high-rise or multi-story buildings of Seattle and Tacoma face different fire safety challenges than those located in a building less than 75 feet tall. Managers, engineers, and caretakers of these buildings have a special fire awareness due to the importance of fire protection and fire survival. Therefore, portable fire extinguishers take on an enhanced benefit like a life jacket in an ocean.
Our technicians are experienced in fire extinguisher services in vertical high-rise buildings, and we work with the maintenance professionals of these buildings to schedule timely fire extinguisher inspections and spreadsheet/report all fire extinguishers to provide complete documentation of what has been certified for the year ahead while complying with all Seattle and Tacoma city fire codes.
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and many local authorities require not only annual inspections of fire extinguishers but also documentation of monthly fire extinguisher inspections. We are happy to perform both those duties for you and leave you worry free. Our service area is King and Pierce counties, so we are never far away from answering your calls.
We take our responsibility to our property managers seriously knowing that lives could be at stake if an extinguisher were to fail. Locating fire extinguishers in conspicuous locations for a quick find is paramount and emergency signage is of increased importance.
In a selection of 5,400 fires, a portable fire extinguisher was able to stop the blaze entirely or control it long enough for the authorities to arrive an astonishing 94 percent of the time.
Since 2005, our fire extinguisher technicians have been trained to know the right extinguisher for the job and how to inspect, service and maintain the code required fire extinguishers for each application. With our assistance, you can enjoy peace of mind, knowing that your fire extinguisher protection needs matters to us.

Fire safety tip:
P.A.S.S. the Fire Extinguisher
Using a fire extinguisher during an emergency can be intimidating, especially if you do not know the proper way to use one. Luckily, there is a useful acronym to help you remember the four easy steps when using a fire extinguisher in the even of an emergency.
Pull the pin. There is a small pin that prevents the fire extinguisher from accidentally being discharged, all you have to do is pull it out and continue on to the next step.
Aim the nozzle of the fire extinguisher low at the base of the fire.
Squeeze the trigger you just pulled the pin out of. Remember to squeeze it slowly and evenly, so the extinguisher is as effective as possible.
Sweep the extinguisher from side to side to cover all areas the fire may have spread to.
