  3. I remember a couple of years ago we had a small fire that started in our break room at my work. Thank goodness we had fire extinguishers all over the place and it ended up not being that big of a deal. Can you imagine how bad it would have been if we didn’t have any fire extinguishers on hand?

  4. I didn’t know fire extinguishers should be placed below a certain height. I guess that’s so people can easily reach them. My mom made me and my siblings run fire safety drill when I was younger- maybe I should add extinguishers to my repertoire.

    • Hi Fire Extinguishers installed in the United Kingdom are subject to relevant British Standards, in this case one of the installation guides in the British Standard is to ensure that no extinguisher of over 4Kg is installed at a height of no more that 1metre and under 4Kg no more than 1.5metres. However I cannot comment on the installation regulations in Australia.
