Check the Weight Before It’s Too Late
In August 2023, the Libertyville Fire Department reported that many businesses were not compliant with current fire extinguisher codes. Chapter 6, Article V, Section 906.3 of the Libertyville Code of Ordinances states that the minimum size ABC dry chemical fire extinguisher permitted shall be 10 pounds. Fire safety personnel ask that business owners comply with these codes to help protect people and property from fire. In other words, check the weight before it’s too late!
Aside from being compliant with the current codes, having a 10-pound fire extinguisher on hand offers many other benefits. As a matter of fact, when it comes to the world of portable ABC fire extinguishers, 10-pound fire extinguishers offer a happy medium between the very large 20-pound units and the very small 2.5-pound units. Furthermore, 10-pound extinguishers give users a lot of coverage for fire protection while still offering ample mobility of the device.
A crucial part of a successful business is ensuring you are up to date with current codes and standards, especially regarding fire protection. Fire extinguishers are a crucial part of your fire protection plan and can often be the difference between a small, extinguishable fire and a life-threatening fire incident.
