Topic Maximum Allowable Quantities of Hazardous Materials

Kevin will help us better understand this topic by answers questions like…What products must be in a fire cabinet? What products do not? How do we calculate quantities? Are aerosol cans included? How does the occupancy type of the building impact these requirements? What if there is a sprinkler system present? What if there is no sprinkler system? How is the fire code different than title 8? Insights on how to select the right numbers for the infamous NFPA placard (and where to put them).
