NFPA takes several steps to ensure food truck safety



As the popularity of food trucks continues, so do concerns around the potential for fires and related hazards. NFPAhas taken several steps in response to these issues, including the development of an updated food truck fact sheet,which maps out specific areas of the truck with corresponding tips and information on proper usage and maintenance.


As for NFPA’s codes and standards, NFPA 1, Fire Code®, NFPA 58, Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code, NFPA 96, Ventilation Control and Fire Protection for Commercial Cooking Operations, and NFPA 1192, Standard for Recreational Vehicles, all contain requirements that contribute to addressing the fire safety hazards associated with mobile cooking operations, but there are other safety concerns that are not currently addressed in these existing documents.
