for the record, two = one and one = none. there should be two fire extinguishers at every location where there is currently only one. you're not supposed to fight a fire with only one extinguisher.

a thought, should we have some system akin to how TechShop handles letting people use certain types of tools (i.e. in our case chemistry, perhaps the darkroom, perhaps soldering tools) of only after they have taken a course on Safety and Basic Usage (which in TechShop's case is usually 1hr long)? --Shannonclark 23:42, 1 October 2008 (PDT)
