Extinguishers for Commercial Kitchens

Restaurant fire suppression systems will not suppress fryer fires properly if ABC-rated fire extinguishers are used before or during the activation of kitchen suppression systems.

ABC-rated extinguishers can have a detrimental effect on the suppression of oil and grease fires in commercial kitchens. Although this fact has been known for decades, ABC-rated fire extinguishers continue to be used in commercial kitchens.

These extinguishers should be replaced with Class K portable fire extinguishers.

Dust and Your Ventilation System

What an excellent article, Dust – When a nuisance becomes deadly, that the NFPA Journal® published in its November/December 2008 Issue written by Amy Beasley Spencer!

In fact, it’s so great that Omni Pro, Inc., is sharing it with everyone here.

The article discusses how dust can be deadly as we all learned on February 7, 2008, from the Imperial Sugar plant explosion and the Malden Mills explosion and fire on December 11, 1995.
Dust is a serious hazard. Don’t let it build up in your ducts and ventilation system.

Contact Omni Pro, Inc., and we will clean your ducts/vents ensuring your safety in accordance with NFPA Standards.

Omni Pro Bolstered by Brown University Testimonial

Brown University
Dining Services
Box 1936
Providence, RI 02912
September 29, 2008

To whom it may concern:
This is a letter of recommendation for OmniServe Inc., a kitchen exhaust cleaning business. Omni has been working with us here at Brown University Dining Services for over two years and we could not be any happier with the results.
Brown University Dining Services operates multiple dining halls on campus. We were not happy with the previous exhaust cleaning company we were doing business with and decided to look for a new company to help us with the difficult task of keeping our facilities clean and safe.
We called Omni and Manager, Angela Claeson, met with us, toured our facilities and came back to us with a written proposal and cleaning schedule that was both comprehensive and professional. We were very impressed with her presentation and decided to give her company an opportunity to clean one unit and then we would make a decision based on this first encounter.
OmniServe’s staff demonstrated both knowledge and skill at their job. They not only did a superior job of the actual duct cleaning, but took great care in keeping the rest of our facility clean and protected while they worked. After they performed their tasks, the foreman made recommendations, wrote a report of the work his staff had done and sent a copy of his report to the Fire Marshall. The OmniServe staff went above and beyond our expectations and have been cleaning and servicing our exhaust systems ever since.
It goes without saying that in my opinion, OmniServe Inc., would be an asset to any commercial cooking operation and that they have my highest recommendation. If I can provide any further information or if I can answer any questions concerning OmniServe’s integrity or work ethic, please don’t hesitate to call me at (401) 863-1686 .
