FIRE REGULATIONS FOR CAR OWNERS

THE PETROLEUM SPIRIT REGULATIONS—STATUTORY RULES and ORDERS No. 952

YOUR CAR TANK IS A “STORAGE PLACE.” HOW ORDER OPERATES.

A private garage is a” storage place” under the above Regulations. Even when the only petrol ” stored ” is that in the car tank or the spare can on the car, the garage is still a storage place when the car is in it.

Fire Protection Necessary.

Regulation 5c provides that “in the storage place or as near thereto as is reasonably practical there shall be kept fire extinguishing apparatus of a type capable of extinguishing fires occasioned by petroleum-spirit or a supply of sand or other effective means of extinguishing such fires.”

Penalty for Contravention.

The Regulations which have. now come into effect are made under Section 10 of the Petroleum (Consolidation) Act, 1928, under which it, is laid down that “if any person contravenes or attempts to contravene any Regulation made under this Section he shall be liable on a summary conviction to a fine not exceeding 220 for every day on which the offence occurs or continues.”

How to Comply.

When no petrol is stored apart from that in or on the car the Home Office requirements are met most conveniently and usefully by carrying ” Pyrene ” Fire Extinguisher on the car itself as at all material times the garage is thus protected. If additional cans of petrol are stored in a private garage the ” Phomene ” Foam Type Fire Extinguisher is recommended for the garage. Sand is unreliable, difficult to apply and damaging in its effect, particularly where the car is concerned.
