Which NFPA standard(s) can I cite that requires the placement of fire extinguishers in open parking garages?
Unless I am mistaken, there is no specific requirement for fire extinguishers.
What Building and fire code and year edition has the city adopted?
Plus does the garage have a full fire sprinkler system
yes normally extinguishers are required
If these are adopted or you can use them;;
NFPA 101 lists a parking garage as a "storage" occupancy
NFPA 1 2018 edition:::
Section 188.8.131.52 Where Required ,,,,, Requires fire extinguishers.
you can access the standards for free, you just have to sign up
Thank you. There is no adopted building code. The NFPA 1 reference is appropriate for us.

Ok than the international fire code also requires them.
