Grill fire closes Broadway Brewhouse for Night

One of the many things people forget to consider when getting their fire systems serviced is the cost of down time in the event of a fire. Some of the things to consider beyond lost sales are wasted products (Food, and Cooking Oils to name two), wages, a possible increase in insurance premiums, and possible legal action if there is an injury or worse. A well maintained fire system will limit these types of expenses, and allow you to do what you do best.

The MFEEA meets the MBOFC

The MFEEA (Manitoba Fire Extinguisher Equipment Assn.) met today with the Manitoba OFC (Office of the Fire Commissioner). The OFC has assembled a committee to review the MB Fire codes, and requirements. Rob Read (President), and Derrick Bertrand (Secretary) of the MFEEA were invited to attend to provide perspective from our industry. We discussed certification of technicians who perform inspections on kitchen suppression systems, certification for technicians who perform inspections on extinguishers, and labeling to identify when an inspection is required , and if there are any deficiencies on that system.

Our presentation was well received, and a good exchange of ideas went around the room. We are looking forward to working with this committee again in the future as we feel it is important to provide imput from our industry to raise the overall level of training, education, and service in Manitoba.
