We do not require fire extinguishers, but they are a good safety precaution in any car. Our school has no specific regulations on the location of extinguishers. However, our tech inspectors will use these two "common sense" criteria when inspecting an extinguisher mounting in your car:
- It must be securely mounted in such a way that the extinguisher won't become a flying hazard in an impact. If the mounting or strapping is loose, we'll ask that the extinguisher be removed for the school.
- It must be mounted in such a way that it won't injure the occupants (either yourself or your passenger). If there are sharp edges, something that would cut your leg or your passenger's leg in an impact, we'll ask you either to remove it or to secure padding around it.
