Refilling fire extinguishers


Once you have used a fire extinguisher, it should be refilled and made ready for use again.  This can be done by a competent person, normally somebody with a recognised fire extinguisher maintenance qualification.

Many fire extinguisher servicing companies offer an exchange service whereby they take your empty fire extinguisher and provide you with a recharged one.
