Automatic fire extinguishing systems like the Fireboy Halon system seen here, can save your life (and vessel) in the event of an emergency, but only if it is periodically inspected and maintained. If you look closely you will see the inspection tag hanging on the top of the bottle. The bottle needs to be weighed and inspected on an annual basis to ensure it is operational and ready for discharge. In addition, the inspector must properly fill out the tag on the bottle to show the date and signature of inspector. Here at Southern Marine Surveying we inspect automatic fire extinguishing systems as part of our surveys to inform you of any problems or deficiencies. Safety on the water is our #1 priority, and should be yours as well.
