Outside Storage for Flammable Fuels

Fire codes prohibit storage of camp fuels of any type inside University Buildings

Therefore the University has provided the field-intense departments outside storage cages which are located at South Campus near the Vehicle Pool Building. Cage # 2 is labeled EAS; keys can be signed out from Room 1-26 ESB. The cage is available from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekdays. Vehicle Pool locks the compound after­ hours and on weekends so you need to organize your field trips so that you have removed your camp fuels prior to lock down.

The outdoor storage cage is provided to store gasoline and propane cylinders.

Once field season is over, you can aerate gas containers and store them in your storage areas, but be sure that all gasoline fumes have been eliminated. Engines and machinery that contain fuels should be drained prior to storing them away for the winter.

DO NOT STORE GASOLINE, BUTANE, PROPANE TANKS, PROPANE CYLINDERS, OR ANY FIELD EQUIPMENT CONTAINING FUEL INSIDE ANY UNIVERSITY BUILDING. (Not even inside a flammable cabinet.)
