Calling all food vendors in Great Falls!

Big news – there are some new fire safety rules in town, and they're shaking things up for Mobile Food Vendors and Temporary Cooking Operations.

So, let's break it down and see what's cooking!

Fire Code Deadline Alert!

First off, mark your calendars for May 1, 2024.

That's the deadline to get up to speed with the new requirements.

License to Grill In Great Falls

Listen up, Great Falls folks – if you're slinging food on the streets or setting up a temporary cooking spot, you'll need a city license.

And don't forget, it's gotta be on display for everyone to see.

Keep it visible, and you're good to go!

Safety Check, Please!

Now, here's the deal – Great Falls Fire Rescue is making the rounds once a year to check on everyone's safety setup.

They'll pop by for a quick inspection, so make sure you've got all your paperwork in order.

Need to schedule an inspection?

Just give them a ring at 406-727-8070.

What's in the Rulebook?

Alright, let's dive into the nitty-gritty of the new rules:

  • Hood Up! If your cooking gear is churning out grease-laden vapors, you'll need a kitchen exhaust hood.
  • Fireproof Your Setup: Automatic fire extinguishing systems are a must-have to keep things safe and sound.

So, there you have it – Montana's new fire safety rules for food vendors.
