Since taking the NFPA 96 course, we have discovered that by only inspecting the Kitchen Exhaust systems inside the building, we are only doing half of the inspection. We would like to know how other departments are handling these inspections.
Are you inspecting the NFPA 96 exhaust systems on roof-tops?
If yes, do you do it all year or only in spring, summer and fall?
Do the fire crews attend with the inspectors?
Do they just hold the ladder or do they also go onto the roof?
Have the inspectors had ladder training?
Has an OG for NFPA 96 inspections been created?
Are inspections pre-booked with occupant?
Thanks for your feedback.
