They usually have a dedicated place where they have to be, very often 
mounted on a wall and might even be specially marked so people can find 
them better. Industrial plants often have these outside of buildings.

Of course, not all of them are worth being mapped, e.g. we're hopefully 
not talking about fire extinguishers mounted on a truck ;-)
