Place a work order with Physical Plant Work Management We want full extinguishers at all campus locations. Most extinguishers will not hold a charge after partial use. While the gauge may hold steady in the green immediately after a slight use, check it the next day and you’ll find the gauge on EMPTY! This is because upon use the dry powder gets inside the seals and allows the nitrogen carrier to escape over a period of time. After ANY use, a fire extinguisher must be serviced and recharged. YOU MUST HAVE THE EXTINGUISHER REFILLED AFTER ANY USE.
Pests or animal trouble
