Keep Fire Extinguishers Accessible and Usable
Extinguishers must be operable and placed in an accessible area where they can be reached immediately. They should not be stored near the engine or in a compartment. Be sure you know how to operate them.
Fire extinguishers must be maintained in usable condition. Inspect extinguishers regularly to ensure the following.
- Seals and tamper indicators are not broken or missing.
- Pressure gauges or indicators read in the operable range.
- There is no physical damage, corrosion, leakage, or clogged nozzles.
