Yes. The Fire Code allows aboveground storage of flammable and combustible liquids at construction sites. FC 1405 and 3406 regulate the storage, handling and use of flammable and combustible liquids at construction sites, including portable tanks temporarily installed at such sites. There is a 660 gallon limit on the capacity of such tanks. In addition, FC3406.2.8 authorizes the filling of construction equipment directly from cargo tank trucks under certain conditions.
