Fire Safety
Vessels are required to carry Coast Guard approved fire extinguishers. The minimum amounts are listed in the Federal Requirements for Commercial Fishing Industry Vessels. These include one B-1 portable extinguisher for boats less than 26' and two B-1 or one B-2 extinguisher for 26'-40' boats. (Ratings for fire extinguishers are classified according to size of the unit and type of combustible for which it is best suited.)
