combustibles, flammable liquids, greases, and those materials, including other oxidizers, that
could react with the oxidizer or catalyze its decomposition.
4. Oxidizing chemicals shall not be stored in the same storage area with combustible materials
and flammable liquids. Combustible packaging and wood pallets may represent a severe hazard
and should be eliminated from the oxidizers storage areas to the maximum practicable extent.

4.12 DoD Storage Type E: Explosive Material Storage
A. Purpose. The primary purpose of type E (magazine) storage is for DoD-managed
E storage when space is available. Chapter 10 of this document provides generalized guidance
addressed by specialized DoD and service directives and should be followed as appropriate.
B. Applicable HCCs. The following HCCs should be stored in storage type E:
1. E1, Explosive, Military.
2. E2, Explosive, Low Risk. (alternative to storage type L, if space available).
C. References. Additional information may be found in:
1. DoD 6055.9-STD, Ammunition and Explosives Safety Standards.
2. Joint Service Manual for Storage and Materials Handling (TM 38-400/NAVSUP PUB
572/AFJMAN 23-210/MCO 4450.14/DLAM 4145.12).
4.13 DoD Storage Type F: Flammable Material Storage
A. Purpose. Flammable and combustible liquids, solids, aerosols, and flammable liquids with
corrosive properties shall be stored in a flammable storage area.
B. Hazard Considerations. Strictly speaking, flammable and combustible liquids do not
"cause" fires; they are merely fuel. Flammable vapors, rather than liquids, in the presence of air
and an ignition source cause fires. The principal hazard of storing closed containers is the
rupture of the containers resulting from increased internal pressure when they are exposed to fire.
This release and vaporization of liquid adds to the intensity of a fire and may cause the rupture of
other containers, resulting in a rapidly spreading fire. Flammable solids include chemicals that
are solids at 100oF. or above. Flammable aerosols include flammable liquids in small
pressurized spray cans such as hair sprays or paints that have a demonstrated ability to rupture
