FAQs on Commercial Kitchen Fire Suppression Inspections
When should commercial kitchen fire suppression inspections be scheduled?
The process of inspecting and testing your Grand Rapids, Michigan commercial kitchen’s fire suppression system is a multi-layered one. There can be annual, quarterly, or monthly inspections required. Your certified safety contractor can help you determine which testing requirements apply to your system and keep you in compliance with NFPA 25 and local codes.
Can I conduct my own in-house inspection?
An inspection by a trained and certified technician is mandated at least every six months, but you can perform some basic visual inspections every month. For instance, you can check that all nozzles are pointed correctly at an appliance and make sure the tamper indicator is intact. You can also ensure the pull station isn’t blocked and check for grease and dirt buildup within the hood. If you spot any problems, it’s a good idea to call in your fire suppression specialist.
Are there steps I can take to prevent a fire in my Grand Rapids commercial kitchen?
Fortunately, modern commercial kitchen fire suppression systems are better at stopping fires before they get out of control. Taking steps to prevent a commercial kitchen fire can save you time and money. Here are a few things you can do:
- Maintain all cooking equipment.
- Regularly inspect your fire suppression system as outlined above.
- Have backup emergency equipment like sprinkler systems and fire extinguishers.
- Make sure the entire kitchen staff is trained in how to prevent and deal with different types of fires.
Your commercial kitchen’s ventilation system is a magnet for smoke, grease, and particles that are highly combustible. Inspect the hood, fan, and ductwork, which make up the ventilation system, on a regular basis. They should be routinely cleaned to prevent grease buildup.
