What is the requirement at your airports for a Ground fire Extinguisher [22.5kgs] to be present during engine startups & manned by personnell?

What about during pushback starts.Would it [Grd fire extinguisher] need to be towed along?
|Quoting TristarSteve (Reply 6):|
It has been proved that the airport fire service response is fast enough for any fire. It is much safer to have the fire service arrive, than to let some unskilled ramper use a fire extinguisher.

During an engine start, the companies I've been involved with just have the procedure to blow the engine fire bottles, I believe. They're halon- no damage done.
