FIRE EXTINGUISHER CONTINUED
Checking the Fire Extinguisher
Check the fire extinguisher for damage, security, and signs of leaking.
Ensure the gauge (Figure 95, Item 6) shows a full charge, i.e., the pointer is in the green segment.
If the needle is in or near the red segment at either end of the gauge, the extinguisher must be
serviced or replaced. Notify Field Maintenance.
Ensure the safety pin (Figure 95, Item 3) is fitted and secure.
The extinguisher should be serviced every 12 months. Check the introduction into service/last serviced date stamp label
on the extinguisher. Report to Field Maintenance any extinguisher with a last serviced date exceeding 11 months.
