ballads for exactly this purpose:
- At Estrella it has been the rule there must be a fire extinguisher VISIBLE
outside of each tent. When we were still at Estrella Mountain Park, I
believe that was the Autocrats interpretation of the local Fire Marshalls
ruling, and theoretically they did come out to do spot checks on some of the
camps. Now that we are at a festival campground, I don't know if the
autocrats are just keeping this as part of the site rules, or if it is
imposed by the site owner, or even the local Fire Marshall (completely
different person from the other site, at least 90 miles between sites and
they are in different counties.)
I think they MIGHT be willing to allow a LARGE bucket of sand to replace an
extinguisher, but having heard the "discussion" between the person in charge
of the period camping area and someone representing the Autocrats discuss
this 4 or 5 years ago, I can't be positive.
