I agree that the letter codes wouldn't be used when looking for an extinguisher, but it is used for managing them. The color codes are not universal either.  

Also, here in Japan there are hello kitty fire extinguishers. I wonder what fire they put out. 


All public extinguishers are red (with a hose). 

I've used red, black, and white ones (all dry powder) in the U.S., and in my basement is a sea-foam green one (that's maybe 40 years old). I think it is a water filled one. 

Color codes only work in certain countries or regions.

We may only need to render the extinguisher icon, but the other info can be useful to people checking on distribution or age, or looking to see what ones are mapped vs what exist (like looking for the black wall mounted one)
