Finding a Fire Supplier That Cares

Posted by Jacob Foster on 2 April 2020

Why do you need a fire business to care about your business?

Put simply if the fire company doesn't point out your obligations by law you could end up with a fine or in deep strife.

Plenty of fire providers, especially fire extinguisher cowboys run in out of a business and barely touch the tag on the fire extinguisher.

fire extinguisher inspection

A well-trained technician will confirm the correct unit for use, clean the unit, and check clearance, pressure inspection, and clear out nozzle and more. It seems simple when a cowboy comes in however a fire technician who is a fire service professional will do all the obligations required for testing a fire extinguisher and also check for other legislated requirements that many business owners miss or don't understand that the fire equipment requires testing. Examples that apply to many businesses;

Testing to all the different standards that apply ensure that if your equipment is required, then FCF Fire & Electrical will help ensure it remains in working condition for that fire event.

A great fire service provider will ensure that you stay on top of the legislation changes. But a Super Fire Service Provider will make sure that you only use good products that will save you money.

An example is exit lights, they aren't cheap or actually these days they can be. However, a provider that buys your exit lights at a wholesaler and receives a free esky, normally isn't putting your interests in front of mind.

Let's see, a cheap exit light is $140 (installed) which will last between 1 to 3 years

An FCF approved exit light is $190 (installed) and comes with a five-year warranty.

Given that over five years your lights are tested every six months which equals 10 tests. The better quality light doesn't require replacement once, twice or even three times to the FCF 5 Year Model.

A Super Provider only wants to help you comply with fire requirements and also save you money.
