Fire Protection for Delaware Restaurants
Delaware restaurant owners such as yourself have a duty to your customers to not just to provide high quality, great-tasting food, but to protect them from harm if a fire breaks out.
Based on reports from the National Fire Protection Association, about 7,640 fires occur in restaurants nationwide each year. Each year, these blazes result in two civilian casualties, 115 civilian injuries, and $246 million in direct property damage. You can prevent your Delaware restaurant from joining these statistics by taking proper fire protection measures today.
Fire Risks in Delaware Restaurants
The best way to protect against restaurant fires is to understand what ignites them. Cooking equipment starts fires in 57 percent of cases, which makes sense considering that open flames, high temperatures and flammable cooking fuels are commonplace in restaurant kitchens. Of course, this means the kitchen area is the most important place for fire protection protocols.
Train Your Restaurant Staff to Protect Against Fire
The first technique for protecting your restaurant from fire is to prevent a blaze from igniting in the first place. This requires you to train your staff in fire prevention techniques. Steps such as keeping the kitchen clean, never leaving cooking food unattended, and rolling up long sleeves while cooking are all ways to prevent fire. Then, keeping exit routes clear, activating the fire alarm at the first sign of a blaze, and knowing how to use a fire extinguisher helps ensure everyone’s safety if a fire starts.
