Review Question

Question: Is there any hindrance in easily seeing and retrieving the fire extinguisher?


Yes, visibility/access to the fire extinguisher is hindered.


Appropriate fire extinguishers are easy to identify and retrieve.

Clothing and other items should not be draped over the fire extinguisher, hiding it from view.
