Depending on what codes you have adopted check out the following: International 
Fire Code chapters : 50,53,63, and 61. The chapters will reference NFPA 58 and 
other codes.

So … working on an Medical Equipment Storage Facility. I’ve got rack storage of 
the medical equipment covered. But I also see a “propane fire safe” in the 
corner of the warehouse. As well as a “medical oxygen cage”.

Owner says the following will be in the O2 cage: (40) ‘E’ Bottles and (20) ‘M’ 

Propane Safe contains two tanks for forklift.

(1) – Do I have to be concerned about the propane in the “propane safe”?
(2) – What standard do I protect the Oxygen to? (NFPA 99 doesn’t seem to fit 
this application)
