Live Online Training- Food Truck Safety

Please join us on 12-1-15 from 11 AM to 1 PM EDT for a live online training event.

Mobile food trucks are bringing restaurant fare to more cities and communities nationwide, with thousands of vehicles now in operation. What are the most reliable ways to protect vendors and patrons from a host of unique fire and life safety hazards? Join us for a live online training presented by Jacqueline Wilmot, an NFPA fire protection engineer and leading expert in food truck safety issues. This event serves up the most recent compiled data along with an eye-opening look at significant lessons from recent tragedies that could potentially have been avoided.

No single NFPA code or standard addresses all the fire protection and life safety challenges inherent in mobile food preparation and service -- such as the unique risk factor of fuel tank connections loosening while driving, causing propane leaks. A special task group of the International Fire Marshals Association (IFMA) is preparing language to submit as public input on NFPA 1: Fire Code and NFPA 96: Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations to more thoroughly address the hazards of temporary cooking operations. An update on that effort will be provided based on Technical Committee decisions during upcoming First Draft Meetings. While changes to codes are underway, fire departments from coast to coast are developing their own standards to protect the public and responders and avoid disasters.


The two main objectives of this event are to: 

  • Identify the latest best practices for mobile food truck fire and life safety

  • Discuss recent incidents involving mobile food trucks and examine compiled data

Don't miss this dynamic and interactive opportunity to learn about fire and life safety concerns surrounding the mobile food truck phenomenon. NFPA's two-hour online training is a "must" for fire department personnel, Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), insurance adjustors, and safety inspectors.


Who Will Benefit: Anyone whose job involves designing, reviewing, evaluating, or installing water-based fire protection systems, including:

Fire service, municipal employees, safety inspectors, insurance professionals, and food truck owners/operators

Related Codes: NFPA 1: Fire Code and NFPA 96: Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations
