Its also an idea to check there are no visible dents or rust on the extinguisher and if it had a pressure gauge is the gauge pointing to the correct area. A really informative article not only for the home but also business’s in the US and the UK.

Excellent point, Deepak!
US OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) has a good online "tool" addressing not only the regulatory requirements for fire extinguisher maintenance, training, etc., but summarizes the primary points involved in making decisions on how much and what type of employee response/involvement there should be regarding using extinguishers to fight a fire at http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/evacuation/portable_relation.html.
