SAFETY BULLETIN-FUELING

Postby rleggitt » Sat May 15, 2004 9:32 pm

Hi ALL,

I know the following is not strictly about CUBS, however I do think
it does apply to there use and more importantly to those who use them
and their loved ones. Please forgive me if you think otherwise.

I just received a Safety Bulletin through the place where I work concerning "Fueling Safety Concerns".

The Concerns were: (though these are directed toward filling at
commercial filling stations the same would apply
anywhere gasoline or other flammable fumes are
present)

1. Never use a CellPhone while pumping or pouring gasoline into a
fuel tank. Studies of events have shown that some cell phones
when signaled produce enough charge to ignite gasoline fumes.

2. While fueling it is best to not re-enter your vehicle. If you must
get back into your vehicle "ALWAYS" hold onto a metal portion of
the vehicle to discharge any static charge built up on your person.
There have been about 150 reported instances where [mostly women]
have caused fires while re-exiting their vehicle and toughing the fuel
nozzle and releasing a static charge which ignited the gasoline fumes.

According to the Bulletin we received you can obtain more info concerning this very important issue by logging onto <http://www.pei.org/>
Then click in the center of the screen where it says, "Stop Static".

Thank You
Russ L.
