Boiler emergency plate

1305 5
I have a specific question: Is the switch plate for a boiler required to be red? And if so, where is this code requirement?

I know what we all do and what some inspectors want, but I am interested in the color of the plate only.

I don't believe its a code requirement. I believe the building dept enforces it.
That's pretty much the conclusion I have come up with. No one in my circle of friends/colleagues/inspectors can come up with anything in writing.
