Fire Extinguisher Servicing Cannock

Fire extinguishers in commercial premises require, by law, annual servicing by a Competent Person to British Standard 5306 Part 3 & Part 9.  The legal requirement for this is stated in the The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

 Midpat Services can fulfil this requirement using our IFEDA trained  Service Technicians.

Supply & Commissioning

New extinguishers, regardless of where they have been bought from,  must receive a commissioning service at the location prior to fitting to ensure they have not been subject to damage in transit and additionally ensure suitability for use.

They cannot be sold as commissioned if sent by post or purchased from internet auction sites. You will invalidate your insurance.

Extinguishers supplied by ourselves within the local area have this done for free when we supply them to site.

We are also able to  install brackets and supply signage alongside  with regards to  the requirements of BS5306 Part 8.


Every Fire Extinguisher requires annual testing. The type and frequency depends upon the type:
