We currently have two smoke detectors (one upstairs and one downstairs).  We have one fire extinguisher rated to 3-A:40-B:C.  It would be nice to have a comparable extinguisher upstairs, as well as a kitchen-oriented extinguisher in the kitchen, and an extinguisher in any lab space that is appropriate to kinds of fires that might occur in that lab space and that won't damage the equipment kept in that lab.  If we have any activity, materials, or apparatus in the space for which our fire extinguishers are not suitable, we should get new fire extinguishers that are compatible with them.
 
  
We have no sprinklers or other automated fire suppression (right?) and we have only one exit. We should consider whether to do anything to improve the marking of the exit and the fire extinguishers.

It would be helpful for safety to ensure that we always have at least one phone available that doesn't depend on power and Internet access to make calls (a land line or cell phone). [[User:Schoen|Schoen]] 20:37, 1 October 2008 (PDT)
