Control measure Reduction
Control measure knowledge
The amount of water used can be reduced by using water sprays instead of jets and by using hand-held jets instead of ground monitors. This will reduce the amount of fire water run-off.
Consider maintaining a stock of hand controlled branches capable of producing a fire fighting jet and/or water spray at reduced levels of flow
- Consider identifying areas of operation where a reduced use water strategy can be initiated without significantly increasing the risk of fire spread or compromising safety
Consider a controlled burn strategy. see Controlled burn
