Service & Fleet Vehicle Safety
How often are vehicle extinguishers recharged?
Recharging of fire extinguishers is required annually for all Industrial and Passenger Vehicles. All Industrial and Passenger vehicles involved in commercial business, construction haulage or livery (carrying passengers) are required to furnish and maintain a portable extinguisher per Federal, DOT, CalOSHA and Fire Marshal regulation. We offer discounts for fleet services and multiple locations. Ask your service rep about DOT approved vehicle brackets.
All industrial and hauling and/or shipping vehicles must furnish a portable extinguisher to the operator. All operators of of industrial hauling/shipping vehicles furnishing an extinguisher must be trained on proper operation.
Please contact us to consult with one of our friendly representatives for more information regarding your specific equipment.
While you may always opt out of the service for that particular piece of equipment, our service technician is required by law to provide the complete recharge service, or the equipment may not be tagged and must be taken out of commission.
