One of the two required means of escape may be a readily accessible and unobstructed window so constructed that it can be opened to a space of not less than twenty-four by twenty-four inches. If the second means of escape is screened, the screen shall open readily. In housing units in existence in the camp on April 2, 1985, a small door or panel that may be readily pushed or kicked open outward may be substituted for an openable window if it is readily accessible and unobstructed and so constructed that it can be opened to a space of not less than twenty-four by twenty-four inches. This small door or panel shall be clearly marked "Fire Exit" in both English and the native language of the camp occupants.

(2) All sleeping quarters intended for use by ten or more occupants, central dining facilities, and common assembly rooms shall have at least two doors remotely separated so as to provide alternate means of escape to the outside or to an interior hall that leads directly to an approved exit.

(3) Sleeping quarters and common assembly rooms on the second story shall have an interior stairway and a permanent, affixed exterior ladder or a second interior or exterior stairway. These two means of egress shall be remote from each other.

(4) Sleeping and common assembly rooms located above the second story shall not be used if they are disapproved by a state or local fire or building department having jurisdiction.

(5) A dry chemical, multi-purpose 4A 60 BC or equivalent pressure type fire extinguisher in good working order shall be provided and located not more than seventy-five feet from each dwelling. The operator may provide individual dry chemical, multi-purpose 2A 10 BC or equivalent pressure type fire extinguishers in good working order in each housing unit to comply with this rule.

(6) First-aid facilities shall be provided and readily accessible for use at all times.

(7) The first-aid kit shall be equipped with materials to stop bleeding and to clean or cover minor cuts and abrasions. The first-aid kit shall consist of a minimum of: thirty one-inch wide adhesive compresses; twenty-five four-by-four-inch sterile pads; two three-inch sterile roller gauze bandages; and one bar of soap.

(8) Local emergency medical care addresses and phone numbers shall be posted within the agricultural labor camp at the same location as the agricultural labor camp license and migrant agricultural labor ombudsman poster.
