Re: [Histonet] Paraffin Block Storage

From:Rene J Buesa

We used to store our paraffin blocks in cabinets also in a room (probably 30
  feets long X 6 wide X 8 high); we used to store 9 years worth of blocks and
  each year we disposed off the oldest to make room for the on going year.
  We had also extinguishers and a smoke detector. We were never cited.
  Did they explain you why did they cited you for? I don't see anything wrong
  with your description.

  Greetings to everyone in Histoland! We are hoping you all can help us with
a question. 

We store our paraffin blocks in a small closet/room (5' x 10', we're
guessing) and have had a Halon fire extinguishing system in there for years.
We have apparently been cited by the PA Dept. of Health (?) for this system
not being adequate. So, the question is, what type of system does everyone
else have? We realize that regulations may differ from state to state, but
would appreciate any input, as our safety officer seems to be puzzled as

Thanks in advance to all the experts.
