Fire extinguishers

Fire extinguishers must be serviced by a licensed contractor. These contractors can be found by looking in the Yellow Pages under "Fire Extinguishers". If your extinguisher has been serviced in the past, there should be a tag on the extinguisher with the contractors name, address, and phone number. Extinguishers used in commercial locations must be serviced and tagged annually.

Annual fire extinguisher education and training is required by OSHA (29 CFR 1910.157(g)) to familiarize employees with the general principles of fire extinguisher use and the hazards involved with incipient stage fire fighting. Click HERE to go to an online training site, where anyone can refresh their understanding of fire extinguishers, how they operate and general maintenance in English or Spanish.

If desired, Truckee Fire Protection District will provide on-site and hands-on training to fulfill this obligation.
