Fire extinguishers

Ording Fire Extinguishers

Departments who need to purchase a new fire extinguisher must contact the University’s fire officer at for approval, before placing an order on Planon, please allow a reasonable lead time.

Need help?

All fire extinguishers must be purchased through our specialist contractor and not from an external supplier. 

For help with ordering fire extinguishers or logging use of a fire extinguisher, contact the Helpdesk.


Report the use of a Fire Extinguisher

If you have had to use a fire extinguisher, please notify the University’s fire officer at and log the event on Planon.


Use fire extinguisher stands rather than wall mounts for all new extinguishers or where refitting or replacement wall mounts would result in disturbance to the building fabric. Stands can also be ordered through the Helpdesk.

Maintenance of Fire Alarm and Detection Systems

The Safety Office is responsible for the annual maintenance of fire alarm and detection systems and planned replacement of equipment. Departments should also carry out daily and weekly checks - visit the Safety Office website for more guidance.
