In NJ. Is it required that 2A:10BC portable extinguishers be in every apartment unit or is common hallway enough if it meets the distance of travel. Some units lack a common shared hallway so I figure just have all install in units even if there is a hallway?


Things to consider, is does visibility, readiness, and immediate availability work if it is just in the hallways rather than mounted in egress path near kitchen? Seems off if someone had to run out into hallway especially if elderly to come back to their units to try to put a flame out?
