Approximate online time: 0.5 Hours
Commercial kitchens contain complex systems for cooking, ventilation, and fire suppression that are not encountered in residential kitchen fires. Investigating fires involving a commercial kitchen requires a sound foundation of knowledge in how these kitchens, their systems, and their components work. This module defines a commercial kitchen and describes the design, construction methodology, components, and operation of its ventilation, fire suppression, and cooking energy systems. The module concludes with discussion of how to pre-plan for investigations involving commercial kitchens.
CFITrainer.Net recommends taking this module before the “Commercial Kitchen Fires 2: Investigation” module. (COMING SOON)
Note: This is a basic, awareness-level PPE module, not a HAZMAT course.
