I and most of you have seen this Gas/Oil Emergency Switch (see pic below) on the stairs leading to the basement or near said equipment if the house is on a slab (sans basement).
Are there any code references to it's placement?
I have a situation where it is located in a stairwell to a basement where the gas furnace is. The stairs are being demolished and it is being turned in a storage pantry with a floor, shelves and the original door.
Can I leave it in there or do I need to move it to the new stairs/stairwell?
