All of which highlights the importance of properly tagging and locating extinguishers
. Tagged extinguishers are like dogs with up-to-date vaccination tags: everyone knows that they’re safe and well-cared-for, and neither one will start spontaneously foaming. It’s obvious at a glance to employees and fire inspectors that an extinguisher has been properly serviced. Imagine a fake inspector, twirling his Snidely Whiplash mustache and threatening to report a regularly serviced extinguisher with a debossed aluminum tag.
