Fire safety

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.

We have no sprinklers or other automated fire suppression 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). Schoen 20:37, 1 October 2008 (PDT)

First aid

We will get a first aid kit and keep it in an obvious place downstairs. We could encourage Noisebridge members to obtain First Aid and CPR certifications. Schoen 20:37, 1 October 2008 (PDT)
