RFMA 2019 Session Preview - Sounding the Alarm of Fire Risks Inside the Restaurant   

Speaker: David Eha (Restaurant Technologies)   
The easiest way to prevent fires and downtime for your business is ensuring cleanliness, especially around the kitchen and in the areas we can’t see. While managers are busy juggling front- and back-of-house responsibilities, it can be easy to lose track of the unseen dangers that lurk around every corner and don’t exactly demand attention the same way a displeased customer might. In this session, participants will learn failsafe ways to maintain kitchen cleanliness, specifically in regard to areas prone to grease buildup and fire, a cost breakdown of fire prevention and how to budget for these expenses. Participants will leave with a “Fire Prevention & Maintenance Calendar” packed with helpful tips to maintain a safe and clean back-of-house.
When: Tuesday, February 12th from 11:15AM – 12:00PM
