Coffee Break Training: Fire Protection Series: Hazardous Materials: Parking LPG Cargo Vehicles   [open pdf - 486KB]

"Liquefied petroleum gas [LPG] cargo vehicles transport millions of gallons of hazardous cargo along our roads and streets every year. What safeguards are in place when those vehicles complete their delivery routes and are parked at the end of the commercial day? National Fire Protection Association 58, 'Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code', provides guidance for these vehicles that may be parked indoors or out. LPG cargo vehicles should not be left unattended on any street, highway, avenue or alley, except for necessary absences from the vehicle associated with drivers' normal duties. These absences include stops for meals and rest stops during the day or night. As a matter of course, vehicles should not be parked in congested areas."
