Do I need portable fire extinguishers?

According to The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, most non domestic premises require at least two class A fire extinguishers ( such as Foam or water ) on every storey of your building ( or one if the premises is very small and one more would hinder escape).

Most buildings with electrical equipment require 2 CO2 fire extinguishers, the size of which is dependant upon the their electrical (voltage) rating.

During a fire risk assessment our surveyor will identify other areas which may require specific fire extinguishers - for example,  a wet chemical fire extinguisher and/or kitchen fire suppression system could be required in a kitchen with a deep fat fryer.

Fire extinguishers are required by law to be inspected and serviced annually by a competent fire extinguisher service engineer.
