Section 1. Section FC 309.1.2 of the New York city fire code, as amended by local law number 148 for the year 2013, is amended to read as follows:

309.1.2 Powered industrial trucks using flammable gas fuel.

Powered industrial trucks that use LPG or other flammable gas as fuel shall be limited to one fuel container with a capacity not greater than 40 pounds (18.16 kg) or 340 SCF (9.63 m3) of flammable gas, whichever is less, except that powered industrial trucks used to resurface ice that are designed to operate with more than one such container shall be limited to operating with two such containers. Liquefied gas containers installed in a horizontal position shall be of such a design that the pressure relief valve will discharge vapor properly. [Such powered] Powered industrial trucks that use LPG or other flammable gas as fuel shall not be parked near open flames or other heat or ignition sources, or near open pits, underground entrances, elevator shafts, or similar areas. Such powered industrial trucks shall be stored and used in locations with adequate ventilation. It shall be unlawful to store or use such powered industrial trucks in a basement, cellar or other areas below grade.
