The standard provides guidelines for the installation and maintenance of portable fire extinguishers in buildings, vehicles, boats, and campers.

The session will also delve into the components and mounting methods of fire extinguishers, and the placement requirements necessary for effective installation.

Maintenance protocols, such as monthly inspections and annual services, will be discussed.

At the end of the webinar, attendees will have a clear understanding of the types of fire extinguishers suitable for different classes of fires, as well as the technical aspects of mounting and maintaining these safety devices.

The knowledge gained will equip participants with the skills to implement and oversee fire extinguisher systems in various settings effectively.
