Do I need an annual service performed on my fire extinguishers?

Yes. Servicing which includes maintenance, recharging and hydrostatic testing shall be performed by a licensed businesses.

The Township does not provide this service.  Fire extinguisher service shall only be performed by a licensed contractor.  You may search online for “fire extinguisher servicing” or look in the yellow pages. We do not endorse or recommend fire extinguisher servicing companies. 

Please be aware of fraudulent fire extinguisher servicing companies saying they were “sent by the Fire Department” to service the extinguishers. We would never send a company to service your fire extinguishers. A fire extinguisher company or a fire service company of any kind does not have enforcement powers nor the authority to demand work to be performed. If at any time you feel uncomfortable or threatened, call the Limerick Township Police Department, or 911. If you have further questions regarding fraudulent fire extinguisher or fire protection service companies, please call the Fire Marshal’s Office at 610-495-6432 ext. 119
