Yes, fire extinguishers do expire. The recommended expiration date is typically set by the manufacturer and is usually 12 years from the date of manufacture. Fire extinguishers should be inspected regularly to ensure they are in working order and have not reached their expiration date. Commercial fire extinguishers are required to be serviced and inspected every six months.

Some types of fire extinguishers are now considered obsolete as regulations change or technology advances. Obsolete fire extinguishers may not have the proper agent to extinguish a fire, may be unable to be properly serviced, or may not meet current safety standards. It is important to check with a professional fire safety company or your local fire department to see if your fire extinguisher is up-to-date.

Consider hiring an experienced fire safety services company such as MidSouth Fire can help to keep your extinguishers functional and up-to-date. We offer a variety of services, including fire extinguisher sales, service, installation, and maintenance for all types of fire extinguishers (dry chemical, CO2, halotron, water, purple K, wheeled units, and Class K, to mention a few).
