Training and Prevention
Every year, hundreds of millions of dollars are lost to commercial kitchen fires, many of which could have been prevented. Properly designed, constructed and maintained kitchen systems can handle common flare-ups, but when improperly designed, constructed or maintained, these systems pose a serious fire danger. Phil Ackland and Associates have developed a number of regional CE (Continuing Education) courses for building inspectors, code officials, fire investigators, health inspectors and others. When applied, the knowledge gained at these courses prevents fires.
