I would like to have input as to what are the requirements,
recommendations or criteria for fire suppression in a chemical
stockroom.  Ours is ca. 400 ft^2, containing all the basics: gen org,
gen inorg, oxidizers, poisons, flammables, reactive metals, corrosives
(the latter 5 groups are in separate, ventilated cabinets).  We
currently have a CO2 system, but we are creating a second store room,
and want to know if we need a non-water suppression system.  Many
thanks!  Barry Ferm, St. Ambrose University.  FermBarretA**At_Symbol_Here**
