City Promotes Safety for Outdoor Dining
11/24/2020
With San Diego County in the state’s Purple Tier, more restaurants are offering outdoor dining, including in Coronado. As the weather grows colder, some businesses hoping to stay open are turning to tents to house diners. Outdoor tents are allowed, according to state regulations. However, there are many factors to consider before buying a tent, the most significant of which is its flame-retardant capability but there are other important rules. The City wants business owners to be aware of all City and state requirements before they invest money in a type of tent that is not allowed. The Coronado Fire Department has a handout that details the California Fire Code on tent requirements and how to obtain a City permit for their temporary use. Fire Department personnel are available to answer questions.
