National Burn Awareness Week Feb. 4-10 – Flammable liquids like gasoline, can burn, release vapors or explode, even at room temperature. Be sure to store them away from any kind of heat source. Even a small amount of these liquids can start a big fire quickly.
Be sure it won’t get too hot in the storage area during the summer, or too cold in the winter. Taking the time to evaluate the storage area for safety is an important part of flammable liquids safety. The storage must be well planned out to ensure that it is safe, and that if a fire does take place, it can be contained and extinguished as quickly as possible.
