Local company’s expertise keeps fire extinguishers in shape



Fire extinguisher installations are graded on low, medium and high hazard levels.

Central Georgia Fire Extinguishers does offer training classes.

“When I come in contact with a new customer, I can look inside the building and see if it’s been maintained. I can see if they are knowledgeable. At that point, I’ll tailor my training to their needs to help them out,” Bloodworth said. 

Numerous fire extinguisher classifications douse certain chemical blazes.

Having the proper protection for the work materials in the area is vital.

Since 2008, fire extinguisher regulation updates make certain models obsolete.

“Currently, any fire extinguisher manufactured in 1984 and earlier is obsolete at this point in time,” Bloodworth said. “They want a fire extinguisher that when you press the handles together to discharge the powder there should be an average of 13 to 16 seconds of discharge time.”

Fire extinguishers should be near exits, according to the local expert.

“The bottom line for the fire extinguisher is they are intended to put out a fire of small size to help the people get out of the building,” he said.

This new business benefits from a firefighter perspective. Facility inspections are done with a keen eye.

“I look at what the extinguisher can do on this side,” Bloodworth said. “If it can stop a fire, it saves lives. When I go into a building, I really nitpick it. If there are other hazards that I see, I’ll let the client know about it. You try to give them that knowledge.”

With the New Year coming, Bloodworth can set up a consultation for local needs.

The county firefighter takes care of each job personally.

“When I have my stamp of approval on it, I know it’s right,” he said.

Call Central Georgia Fire Extinguishers at 478-452-9108 or 478-251-3760. Interested parties can also email Bloodworth at

The business is located at 462 SW Pancras Rd. in Milledgeville.
