It is so important for every educational facility to have state-of-the-art fire protection to ensure the safety of students, staff, equipment, and the buildings and grounds. There are strict laws about this in most states. Statistics show that more than 50% of fires at schools and universities start in kitchens, especially cafeterias. Upgrading a fire protection system isn't enough. It must be serviced and maintained on a regular basis by trained technicians who are constantly on the lookout for ways to increase safety in the kitchens of our schools.​
