KING CITY — King City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture will host an online Lunch and Learn on Thursday, March 25, at noon, in lieu of its non-pandemic luncheons.

The topic of the discussion will be fire safety and security for home and business.

A fire marshal from Carmel Fire Protection, which has a contract with King City, will speak about fire safety, particularly how fire protection is needed by businesses. One topic they’ll delve into is fire inspections and safety requirements.

For those wanting information, a checklist will be reviewed for businesses on what to have ready or to obtain for increased safety or even to follow insurance guidelines.

Visuals of what can be sought in an inspection, from holes in the wall to over-stacked storage, will be reviewed.

A speaker from Benitez Security will cover the differences in keeping homes and businesses secure. While a home can rely on external lighting and look for things like package theft avoidance, businesses need higher defenses, such as alarms, and have to be on alert for higher stakes trespassing.

Tips will be given about how to keep secure, such as how to identify suspicious people and vehicles and the use of cameras in the pandemic era.

To sign up for the luncheon, contact Chamber Manager Janet Bessemer at [email protected] or by calling 831-385-3814.
