Scepter takes Safety & Compliance very seriously. That's one of the reasons we are a sponsor of the National Gasoline Safety Project.
The goal of the National Gasoline Safety Project is to stop gas fires. We want every parent to be aware of the dangers of gasoline. As a manufacturer of gas cans, we ensure our jerry cans meet or exceed ASTM F2517-09 "Standard Specification for Determination of Child Resistance of Portable Fuel Containers for Consumer Use." We strongly recommend that, as a parent, you visit "Stop Gas Fires" at http://www.stopgasfires.org and have a conversation with your children about the dangers of gasoline.
"Data is scarce, but it is estimated that 1,500 children are injured or killed in gasoline fires each year. For survivors, the consequences of gas burns can be severe and lifelong. The goal of the National Gasoline Safety Project is to stop gas fires in every community. The campaign reaches out to parents because they are their children’s first line of defense. Parents buy gasoline, choose where and how to store it at home, and teach their children how to handle gasoline – both through what they say and what they do."
