Fire safety in commercial kitchens

NFPA Guidelines for Kitchen Hood Suppression System Inspections:

  • Quarterly. Kitchens that operate 24 hours a day, or that produce high volumes of food, such as in hospitals, truck stops, and 24-hour restaurants, should have their fire suppression systems inspected quarterly to prevent the risk of flash fires.

  • Semi-Annually. Kitchens that operate for only a few hours per day or prepare more moderate volumes of food, such as in sit-down restaurants and school or business cafeterias, should have their kitchen hoods inspected twice per year to ensure they are working at peak efficiency.

  • Annually. Kitchens that do not operate daily or produce high volumes of food, such as in churches and community centers, should have their kitchen hood suppression systems inspected once per year to stay compliant with all NFPA and local fire safety codes.
