The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s Fire Department is aware of unregistered service providers of fire equipment that currently service fire extinguishers in Nelson Mandela Bay. The incorrect servicing of fire equipment could proof to be detrimental when a fire broke out resulting in defective extinguishers that could lead to more damage to property.
It came to our attention that some companies allegedly still service fire extinguishers with green labels which usage was discontinued from 2003 due to environmental concerns.
Fire extinguishers still in use have red, blue, black and cream labels at the back.
The following companies are registered with the South African Qualification Certification Committee – Fire (S.A.Q.C.C.):
- Coast 2 Coast Fire
- Chubb Fire – Port Elizabeth
- G-one Fire
- SRH Fire Protection
- A L Fire
- Wilbran CC trading as Phoenix Fire Protection
- Bayteck Fire – P.E.
- Fire General CC
- Transnet NPA – P.E.; and
- Landmarine Fire Fittings.
Please note if any other company besides the above mentioned serviced your fire extinguishers, consider getting a registered company to service it again or replace your extinguishers.
