The Clark County Fire Department has approved the following fueling guidelines for the upcoming National event. Adherence to these guidelines is necessary to reduce the chance of static electricity causing a fire during fueling operations.
Main Fuel Depot
The container being filled and the nozzle dispensing the fuel must be electrically bonded.
If a vehicle is being filled directly from the tank, the tank and the vehicle must be electrically bonded.
Pit Fueling/Mixing Operations
Where dispensing/mixing occurs into a metal container, the metal containers must be electrically interconnected. This can be achieved by either placed the container on a metallic floor plate where dispensing container’s fill stem is electrically connected to the plate or bonding the fill stem of the dispensing container to the fill container.
Where dispensing/mixing occurs into a plastic container, the container must be placed on a metallic floor plate to which the dispensing container’s fill stem is bonded.
Vehicle Fueling in the Pits
When fuel is dispensed into a vehicle in the pits, the two shall be connected with a bonding wire regardless of the material that the container is made of.
