Extinguisher Identification

Extinguisher Identification

Fire Prevention Inspector Karl C. Appel, of Fullerton, Calif., has developed a system of painting roof beams outside classrooms red when the room contains a fire extinguisher. This eliminates costly metal boxes outside the classrooms, which oftentimes invites vandalism.

The beam painting program does not detract from the decor of a building, and extinguishers can be easily located from outside the building as well.
