How many fire extinguishers per sq. ft?
Have you asked yourself the question “How many fire extinguishers per sq. ft?”
So you have an office or a restaurant in New York City. Maybe a bar or a theater? Any place where people are working or that is open to the public is at risk of fire. If for no other reason than the human element. Adhering to the CYA protocol (Cover Your ____) is a good position to take. And so, carrying out a fire risk assessment would be in any business owner, or property manager’s best interest. Such an assessment done by Master Fire Prevention will help determine not only the type, but the number of fire extinguishers required by law.
Fire extinguishers for use on Class A fires (which include flammable solids such as paper, wood and textiles), are rated based on their ability to extinguish test fires. The test rating is displayed on the extinguisher label itself. But do you know how to interpret this information?
Most likely not, which is why calling a company such as ours, with over 40 years in the commercial and residential fire protection services business is key to what happens next. These requirements are detailed in Section 15-02 of Title 3 of the Rules of the City of New York, which you can find here:
