Our experienced teams work 24hrs a day to help your business if the worst happens. Fires in commercial kitchens are a relatively common occurrence. In 2019-20 there were over 1400 primary fires (involving rescues, casualties or more than 5 fire engines) recorded in food and drink establishments.
A high fire risk is associated with professional cooking environments, as the potential for accidents is great in a fast paced, highly pressured environment. Combine this with large volumes of flammable cooking oil, naked flames and heat sources – and you have a recipe for disaster!
Whether a fire has been caused by a faulty appliance, electrical lead, misuse of equipment or appliance, by the build-up of grease in the duct work or vents or whether it has simply been caused by accident, a fire in a restaurant or hospitality business can be devastating, even if no one is injured or no lives are lost.
