Fire Equipment Maintenance

 

Why switch your service to the Kyneton Volunteer Fire Brigade?

The Kyneton Fire Brigade is a fully volunteer operated fire station. Our members dedicate their time and commitment to serving the community 24 hours a day, 7 days of the week, 365 days of the year.

By using your local fire brigade for your fire equipment maintenance, you can be assured that the funds raised are staying within the community to assist a valuable volunteer organisation. These funds help to keep the station operational including:

  • Regular station maintenance
  • Purchase of new fire fighting equipment
  • Repairs and maintenance of current fire fighting equipment
  • Upgrade of brigade vehicles

 

Our FEM personnel will attend your site every 6 months to perform the required servicing specified in the Australian Standards & Building Codes. Services that we cover are all maintenance for your fire extinguishers, fire blankets, hose reels, fire hoses and smoke alarms. Our prices are very competitive and we provide a full guarantee on all work performed by our officers. We only use high quality CFA endorsed products.

Fire Equipment Checklist:

  • Are there sufficient numbers of fire extinguishers?
  • Are the fire extinguishers the correct type?
  • Are they located appropriately for fire hazards?
  • Have the fire extinguishers been appropriately maintained?
  • Is there a maintenance tag attached to the fire extinguisher?
  • Are the fire extinguishers accessible at all times and clear of all obstructions?
  • Is the signage clear and visible from all approaches?
  • Have all staff been trained in the use of fire extinguishers?

 

Fire extinguishers & hose reels are the most common form of fire safety equipment in buildings. They are provided within buildings to enable occupants to attempt to extinguish a fire. For a fire extinguisher to be effective, it is extremely important that the correct type of fire extinguisher is provided to match the potential risk that is present.
