S. Higashi stated, earlier in the thread, that the Japanese government provided fire extinguisher stations along some residential streets, and posted a link to a photograph: <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:Fire_extinguisher_ja.jpg>.  Such a fire extinguisher station would be useful to map, as you would be likely to find a fire extinguisher there.

While both are used for putting out fires, fire extinguishers (a) are limited to use on smaller fires, and (b) are useful by themselves, whereas you need a suitable hose in order to use a fire hydrant )and so are of use to firefighters, but not the general public).
i'm uncertain about the case for fire extinguishers -- they're small and
please provide scenarios where tagging extinguishers is meaningful.
