Warehouse managers or storekeepers must insure that:

· There are materials and equipment available to put out fires such as fire extinguishers or buckets and hoses, if a water source is available.

· Fire extinguishers are inspected regularly to make sure that they work.

· Flammable materials such as fumigants are properly stored.

· Strict rules that prohibit smoking or cooking in or near the warehouse are enforced.
