I recently had a problem with a faulty light switch that had me worried about my townhome having an electrical fire. When I contacted the housing manager about it, he fixed the faulty switch, but told me that he doesn't provide fire extinguishers because they're too expensive and maintaining them is too much of a hassle.
Given that the building is over 30 years old and I've now had two electrical problems in as many months, I'm not going to risk my family's safety, so I bought a fire extinguisher last night. But I had always assumed that landlords were required to provide at least one fire extinguisher for residential dwellings. Is this not the case?
Are there any Utah or federal laws about whether a landlord is required to provide and maintain some means of fire suppression? Maybe in relation to renter's or property insurance?
