Fire Extinguishers

N.C. State University maintains a large inventory of fire extinguishers. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requires that all fire extinguishers be inspected monthly, annually and tested at specific times, depending on the type of extinguisher. Fire and Life Safety manages the inspection and testing of NC State University’s fire extinguishers. Extinguisher placements and locations are determined based on NFPA requirements.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding extinguisher placement, contact the Fire and Life Safety Office at 919-515-2568 or
