FYITanks with top openings shall be mounted as follows: 1. On well-constructed metal legs connected to shoes or runners designed so that the tank is stabilized and the entire tank and its supports can be moved as a unit; or 2. For stationary tanks, on a stable base of timbers or blocks approximately 6 inches in height which prevents the tank from contacting the ground. Tanks with top openings only shall be equipped with a tightly and permanently attached, approved pumping device having an approved hose of sufficient length for filling vehicles, equipment or containers to be served from the tank. Either the pump or the hose shall be equipped with a padlock to its hanger to prevent tampering. An effective antisiphoning device shall be included in the pump discharge unless a self-closing nozzle is provided. Siphons or internal pressure discharge devices shall not be used.
FYITanks with a connection in the bottom or the end for gravity-dispensing liquids shall be mounted and equipped as follows: 1. Supports to elevate the tank for gravity discharge shall be designed to carry all required loads and provide stability. 2. Bottom or end openings for gravity discharge shall be equipped with a valve located adjacent to the tank shell which will close automatically in the event of fire through the operation of an effective heat-activated releasing device. Where this valve cannot be operated manually, it shall be supplemented by a second, manually operated valve. The gravity discharge outlet shall be provided with an approved hose equipped with a self-closing valve at the discharge end of a type that can be padlocked to its hanger. Tank is UL LISTED 142 tank

Shall be anchored in a concrete foundation 15" diameter x 3 feet deep. Bollards shall be spaced away from the tank a distance equal or greater than their height above grade. Bollards shall not be more than 4 feet on-center. 2) Provide Concrete Road Barriers (Jersey Barriers) as approved by the Fire Code Inspector (4' apart, 4' from tanks. See 2003 IFC Section 312.3 for height and impact resistivity requirements). 3) CMU Block Screen Walls may be an acceptable method of vehicular protection. When CMU screen walls are considered for vehicular protection, they shall be proven to meet the height/impact resistivity requirements of 2003 IFC Section 312. *Standard traffic curbs are not recognized by the Fire Code as an acceptable method of vehicular protection. **Jersey barriers are provided
