I have been an insurance inspector since march; & have familiarized myself w/ all relative code info…(at least i’d like to think I have)…but 1 thing still puzzles me about residential dwelling fire extinguisher installs as required in APARTMENTS: they never seem to be tagged (as in…inspected by a local official).
My company cites ‘standard practices’ as to their requirement; & NFPA 10 sez nothing about residential vs. commercial.
So, I guess the questions become: Since class A fire extinguishers are required to be installed in the kitchen of an apartment (1 for every 75 feet of travel)…
what code governs this requirement; & why?
why do I consistently see un-tagged fire extinguishers in apartment kitchens?
