For a missing fire extinguisher:

  1. Provide the building name and room number closest to where the fire extinguisher should be located.

For a damaged or displaced fire extinguisher:

  1. Provide the building name or location the fire extinguisher was found. 
  1. Provide the 4 – 5 digit number located on the front of the extinguisher in black lettering or located on the silver and blue sticker marked “Property of the UC Davis Fire Department”.

For a discharged fire extinguisher:

  1. Call Emergency Dispatch at 9-1-1 to report the incident immediately, or as soon as you determine the extinguisher was discharged. Fill out the form and provide it to the Fire Department personnel when they arrive to inspect the area.
