Where should I store my fire extinguisher?

Store your extinguisher away from the stove, near the entrance to the kitchen.  Mount the extinguisher on the bracket that is supplied with the extinguisher.  In your workshop, mount the extinguisher away from power tools, near the exit.

Caution:  Never put yourself or anyone else in jeopardy by trying to extinguish a fire that may be too large. Sound an alarm to other occupants, leave the building close all doors behind you and call the Fire Department (9-1-1).  Go to your designated meeting place and wait for firefighters to arrive.
