Fire extinguisher inspections


The Inverness Fire Department will be offering free fire extinguisher inspections in conjunction with the upcoming Inverness Fair. An outside extinguisher specialist will refill and repair fire extinguishers, at some additional cost. Most simple refills cost around $20. “There are times when you might have an oven fire, or the barbecue outside gets too hot, you can just put it out,” said Inverness Fire Department General Manager Scott McMorrow. Interested parties can affix their name and telephone number to each extinguisher, to be dropped off at the Inverness Firehouse on August 12. For more information, call (415) 669.7151.
