External fire protection

Control Measure Knowledge

To limit firespread or prevent deterioration of internal conditions, external firefighting tactics and various types of firefighting media may be necessary. The resources required to provide external protection and any impact on safety should be assessed before proceeding. For further information, see Fires and firefighting.

It may be necessary to remove potential external fire loading to limit external firespread, for example, creating firebreaks in thatched roofs or green roofs and walls.
