We design, install, repair, inspect and offer maintenance on all fire protection equipment. We provide emergency service 24/7 to meet your unexpected needs as well.
Emergency Exit Lighting Service
During any emergency, the exit direction must be absolutely clear. In the presence of heavy smoke or immanent danger, emergent exit lighting is a life saving vehicle. It’s not something to be taken lightly. Because of this, building codes require very specific test and test-documentation. We’re ready to take care of all of them for you. If you prefer to handle monthly checks yourself we can schedule visits for when more extensive testing is required.
Fire Extinguisher Service
Federal and state certifications require that you properly maintain, regularly test and inspect all portable fire extinguishers. Monthly visual inspections involve a specific checklist with items such as pressure gauges, seals, weight, and accessibility. Pressure tests must be performed by an approved company such as Cal Counties Fire every 5 years for pressurized, carbon dioxide for wet chemical extinguishers and every 12 for dry chemical types. Depending on the type, periodic re-charging may be required. Non-rechargeable designs must be removed after 12 years from the manufacturing date. We can answer questions you have about your own facility, provide you with scheduled fire extinguisher service as a result keeping you in compliance while saving you time and headaches.
Fire Hose Service
Cal-Counties provides sales, installation, and testing of fire hoses. NFPA standards specify replacement of fire hoses and hose components. Fire hose testing such as adhesion, elongation, pressure, and twist are also required. Starting 5 years after manufacturing date hydrostatic testing is required every 3 years after. Additionally, hoses must be re-racked annually and inspected monthly. Our fire hose service takes care of all of that, right on time, with no worries and no distractions for you.
