Kitchen Fire Suppression Inspection
While you’re busy running your successful Tampa Bay area restaurant, your business depends on your kitchen fire suppression ability to detect and suppress fires before they get destructive. Between the heat, grease and the crowded working environment of the restaurant kitchen, fires can flare without warning – and without a reliable kitchen fire suppression system, they can destroy years of work in a matter of minutes.
Fire suppression systems are required to be inspected on a semi-annual basis as a minimum requirement of NFPA.
