Fire extinguisher maintenance

Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Fire extinguishers are good thing to have in the home, but they still need maintenance.     

Champaign Fire says if you live in an apartment, you may see a paper attached to the extinguisher with a punched date. 
The extinguisher is good for a year after that date. 

Homeowners can also make a monthly check just to make sure the extinguisher hasn’t been damaged. Make sure there’s a nozzle and that the hose is in good shape.
