About this video:

This video reviews the fire protection elements in commercial kitchens for Type I exhaust hoods. The fire protection elements inspected include a Type K fire extinguisher, drop-down tubes and nozzles under the hood, a canister or cabinet providing the suppression chemicals, and a manual actuator on the wall. Due to the presence of grease and the dangers it poses in commercial kitchens, it is important for inspectors to verify the presence and location of these elements.
