MFV Visiting Flow Chart

MFV’s that are local/out of town or out of state that do not have a Columbus License that are expecting to operate in the City of Columbus at Events/Festivals must complete the following before being allowed to operate.

** Propane Pressure/Leak Test**

Documentation of a completed/passed Propane Pressure Leak Test was performed within the past 12 months. Per Ohio Fire Code (c) 320.6.3 (xiii) Piping systems, including hose, shall be pressure tested and proven free of leaks in accordance with section 6.14 of NFPA 58 as listed in rule 1301:7- 7-80 of the Administrative Code.

Propane Pressure Leak Test shall be performed PRIOR to Event/Festival. The test is to be performed by a Licensed Propane Technician or Licensed Plumber (State Certification/License# will need to be provided in paperwork). Out of town vendors should have this completed prior to showing up at the event.
