Prevent firespread

Control Measure Knowledge

This control measure should be read in conjunction with External fire protection


The unpredictable energy produced by a fireball or vapour cloud explosion can cause fire to spread rapidly to adjacent areas and develop into a large incident. Early recognition of such possible consequences will enable incident commanders to develop resources to counteract this risk of fire spread. Typically, this will involve cooling adjacent structures and/or containers.
