It’s critical for every Fullerton business to stay up to code requirements with professional maintenance and installations. That may seem a nuisance, but greenhouse gases released by burning buildings can be reduced by 98% when automatic fire sprinklers are installed. That’s only if they’re working properly. We’re experienced in fire extinguisher service, fire hose service, fire sprinkler service, and emergency exit lighting service. We also offer live fire training classes.
It’s tough for a business owner or building manager to keep up with codes and regulations so let the experts at Cal-Counties draw from decades of industry knowledge to keep everyone safe. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that everything’s being taken care of properly and as a result fewer things to attend to as well as avoiding re-inspections and fines.
Our Services in Fullerton, California
Cal-Counties is Southern California’s Inland Empire leader and in business for over 30 years. Family owned and operated, our highly-qualified experts are true professionals, from answering your phone call to uniformed technicians performing inspections, service, repairs and installations.
Fullerton Fire Extinguisher Service
You may have learned the hard way that extinguishers aren’t an install-and-forget item. State and federal regulations require periodic maintenance, inspection, and testing. Neglecting that puts your employees and tenants at risk and leaves you facing serious fines. And if there is a blaze your insurance claim might be rejected.
- Monthly Inspections — Specific items must be visually checked, and the pressure gauge confirmed by weighing.
- Annual Inspections — Each year a thorough examination by an approved fire extinguisher service company such as Cal-Counties is required.
- Dry Chemical — These types must be pressure tested every 12 years.
- Stored Pressure — These must be pressure tested every 5 years. They must also be emptied, maintained, and re-charged every 6 years.
We can take care of all fire extinguisher services for you as a result your building is safe and up to code.
Fire Hose Service
Recent NFPA changes require upgrades to newer designs, materials, and technologies. We’ll be happy to check which requirements are applicable to you in Fullerton. Our fire hose services include the necessary upgrades, detailed inspections, extensive tests, and annual re-racking. We’ll also perform the required hydro-static testing every 3 years, starting 5 years after the manufacturing date.

Emergency Exit Lighting Service
Whether for a natural or building disaster or just a power outage, emergency exit lighting is vital and very specific testing and maintenance are required to pass building inspections. In most Fullerton building types monthly requirements are a simple visual check and button test. But meeting federal, state, and local codes also requires periodic battery and bulb testing along with expert inspection of casings, wiring, and other components. Our emergency exit lighting service can be a very low-cost addition to our fire suppression maintenance contracts.
Live Fire Training Classes
Cal-Counties also offers bilingual classes covering escape plans, the types of extinguishers and choosing the right one, and hands-on how-to-use training. We’ll hold the classes at your Fullerton location for the convenience of your employees. Classes are about 2 hours long, and most of that time goes till giving each person a live-fire practice experience. Live fire training classes improve safety as well as providing certifications for insurance purposes.
Fullerton California Fire Codes
All buildings must follow California fire codes and regulations in addition to local codes. You can find an online copy of the Fullerton code at http://hetnet.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Fullerton-Fire-Code_2013.pdf.
Historic Notes: Like much of Southern California, Fullerton grew as a result of railway lines coming through an agricultural area. The city was founded in 1887 alongside the famous Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway. The 2010 census gave Fullerton a population of 135,161 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fullerton,_California).
