• Fire Extinguishers

     

    As per NFPA 10 Portable Fire Extinguishers are to be inspected annually, with maintenance every 6 and 12 years. The service required is based on the age of the extinguisher, which is typically stamped on the bottom or printed on the label.

    Annual inspections can often be done on the spot while you wait. 6 and 12 year maintenance services take a little longer. Bring your extinguisher to our shop at 861 Station Avenue in Langford or have a Mobile Technician come to you.

    ABC Extinguishers manufactured prior to 1984 are no longer serviceable. We offer ABC Fire Extinguisher recycling for $2.50 each. This fee includes depressurization and disassembly of extinguisher, removal and disposal of powder, separation of plastics and metals for recycling.

    An annual inspection at our shop costs $7.50 +tax each regardless of size. Maintenance service are priced based on the size of the extinguisher and the service required. Give us a call today and we can guide you through the options and prices.

  • Fire Alarm Systems

     

    An automatic FIRE ALARM SYSTEM is designed to detect the unwanted presence of fire by monitoring environmental changes associated with combustion. In general, a fire alarm system is either classified as automatic, manually activated, or both. Automatic fire alarm systems can be used to notify people to evacuate in the event of a fire or other emergency, to summon emergency forces aid, and to prepare the structure and associated systems to control the spread of fire and smoke. NFPA 72 — National Fire Alarm Code requires Annual Testing and Maintenance of your fire alarm.

  • Monitoring

     

    Is your Fire Alarm System Monitored?

    Without monitoring Fire Departments do not receive notification when the Fire Alarm System is activated. These systems rely on building occupants or passersby to take the initiative to phone 911.

    Fire Alarm Monitoring takes reduces the uncertainty allowing you to rest easy knowing the Fire Department will be notified without delay; greatly minimizing the risk of injury and damage to the building.

    Western Canada Fire Protection is proud to offer monitoring services. We will supply, install, maintain, and inspect your monitoring system. Please give us a call for more information or to request a free quotation

    BC FIRE CODE requires:

    Annual Inspection of your Fire Sprinkler system
    Annual Winterization (dry systems) - As the weather changes and temperature drops, your dry pipe system may experience condensation which may result in water accumulation in the sprinkler piping. This build up of water in the piping may be subject to freezing which could cause cracks or burst piping.

  • Backflow Prevention Devices

     

    Annual Inspection of your Backflow Prevention Devices

    Backflow preventer devices prevent contaminated water from flowing backwards from the building into a municipality’s water distribution network. They are installed on several water supply lines, including fire sprinkler and/or standpipe systems, boilers, and irrigation systems.

    Backflow preventers must be serviced annually and a test report send to the Capital Regional District. Western Canada Fire Protection’s certified technicians inspect and test your Backflow Prevention Device, issue a report to the CRD, provide you with a copy of the report, and offer repair services as needed.
