Preventing Kitchen Fires
Not only should your commercial kitchen have tools to put out a fire, but you also need tips to help keep them from starting to begin with. When running a kitchen, these are a few things to keep in mind:
- Safety is paramount. Train kitchen staff and front-of-house the best methods for spotting and fixing fire hazards. They should also know protocols if a fire breaks out and learn a proper evacuation plan.
- Equipment maintenance and inspections. Always check wires for splicing or fraying. When you notice equipment not working properly, unplug it and ensure it gets inspected and repaired by a trained professional.
- Invest in a fire suppression system. Automatic fire suppression systems are similar to having a first responder on-call. The system automatically disperses chemicals to help diffuse flames while also shutting down the electrical supply or fuel to any nearby equipment.
