Fire Extinguisher placement

kam76March 1, 2013

I think I saw a couple of clever fire extinguisher hiding spots in kitchens and now I am having trouble finding those. Where do you have yours? In my current kitchen mine is tucked into a corner but it was definitely a last minute thing it doesn't really have a "home".

We have ours tucked behind our double ovens:

Ours is in a deep (stock-pot sized) drawer to the right of the range.

Under the sink. Not going to over think this one.

The recommended location is easily accessible and on the way to an exit. I plan on keeping mine in the double angled cabinet near the hall if it fits, will likely have to put a sign or other indication it is there. Othwise, haven't figured that out yet.

I love oldbat's niche. I could have done that, but I'm short and clumsy. There's a 99% chance I'd manage to knock it over and out of reach when I try to grab it quick. If the counter there was standard instead of 30 inches I'd have a chance, though then I wouldn't have the extra inches that make the niche :-/

Taggie, am I missing something? I don't see it. Please confirm it IS in place:)

There are quite a few other threads on this, one linked. It's a great reminder and should be in the sticky post at the top of the forum ( and probably is!)? I hadn't thought about where to put one until I saw one of the posts on this subject. Then, I looked around and thought - hmmm I could use that niche for this....

Hi oldbat2be, it's in the left side of the drawer beside the blender. It's a disposable extinguisher with the pop lid. Looks similar to the one in the link below.

Good for small fire that can be caught quickly. In case of a large fire our strategy is to run like hell. :-)
