Grills & Fire Code Requirements
Cooking on Balconies. The Florida Fire Prevention Code prohibits any cooking on a balcony of an apartment or condominium.
Storage of L.P. Gas or Gas Grills. The Florida Fire Prevention Code also prohibits the storage or use of L.P. gas in quantities greater than 1 pound above the first floor in any apartment or condominium. Therefore, L.P. gas grills cannot be stored on a balcony. It is important to note that L.P. gas cylinders cannot be stored inside the residential unit or anywhere above the first floor.
The specific code sections are as follows: NFPA 1:10.11.7 For other than one- and two-family dwellings, no hibachi, gas-fired grill, charcoal grill, or other similar devices used for cooking, heating, or any other purpose, shall be used or kindled on any balcony or under any overhanging portion or within 10 ft (3 m) of any structure. Listed electric ranges, grills, or similar electrical apparatus shall be permitted. (Per NFPA 1, Uniform Fire Code, Florida 2005 Edition)
NFPA 1: 126.96.36.199.2 Cylinders having water capacities greater than 2.7 lb (1 kg) [nominal 1 lb (0.5 kg) LP Gas capacity] shall not be located on balconies above the first floor that are attached to a multiple family dwelling of three or more units located one above the other.
Enforcement action will be taken as described below:
We need to be safe at all times. Protect yourself, your neighbors and the property.
