Warehouse Storage of Hazardous Materials

The primary mission of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department is to protect the community by preventing fires and other hazardous conditions through education and enforcement of life safety codes. This is accomplished by ensuring compliance with applicable regulations and ordinances.

The storage and use of flammable chemicals presents one of the highest hazards in warehouses. This is due to the risk of fire either by direct ignition or fueling a fire that originated from another source. Other hazardous materials, such as corrosive and toxic substances, also become extreme health hazards in a fire.
