Fire Extinguisher Service Company Solicitation

November 1, 2019

North Grenville – The North Grenville Fire Service has received several complaints from local businesses of a fire extinguisher company soliciting on-the-spot extinguisher maintenance, with threats of “fines from the Fire Marshal” for non-compliance.

“Business owners are responsible for monthly and yearly fire extinguisher maintenance,” reminded Shannon Armitage, Fire Prevention Officer with the North Grenville Fire Service.

“While companies are permitted to give you information about services they provide, they should never use pressure tactics to make an immediate sale,” she added.

If a person attempts to obtain goods or services under false pretences and/or under duress, the OPP should be contacted immediately.
