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 the impact of fire water run off on compacted materials and ground conditions
Consider a controlled burn strategy. see Controlled burn
