Pre-planning for High Risk Area's
« on: March 30, 2009, 10:22:50 AM »
Do any brigades/groups do any Pre-planning (Response plans according to alarm levels) for high risk area's...for Urban responses it seems present, im referring to mostly Urban/Rural interface or Highly populated area's near Scrub fires etc?

Eg, yesterdays fire at bridgewater, would there have been a response plan for that specific area (seeing as the area is now somewhat high risk and has had two fires in 3 years).

Some events that went on there, were a exact duplicate of the last big job there...so it seems low progress has occured since then.

Shockin Terrain there, good job by all :)

I was at the last job there, and access is a bit limited maybe they should look at that first, instead of crews having to do 300 mtere hose lays.

ah long hoselays were fine mate!, our crew ended up working with burnsides,  did it quite successfully :)

It just sucked when ya ask for a 38mm Feed to a Gated Y for spliting to 25mm...when u actually get a Hosereel feeding the Gated Y...sigh, but all went good :)

Good luck in a National Trust park area
