Bullet indentation. Strategic action removed- Ensure inaccurate information is identified and resolved and information systems are updated following the closure of an incident or following an inspection/site visit Strategic actions added - • Develop mutual understandings with building developers, owners and occupiers on the exchange of information about alterations to any parts of a building which may have effect on firefighting operations. • Ensure communication systems are in place to inform relevant personnel, stakeholders and partner agencies. • Develop systems and processes to embed a culture of risk information gathering, recording and communication. • Consider the requirement for the provision of specific equipment and training in relation to buildings identified as specific risks within the area of the service. • Collate and maintain risk information regarding hazardous materials sites within their area or neighbouring fire and rescue service areas where it is foreseeable that their personnel may be required to respond to hazardous materials incidents • Include environmental risk information within operational risk plans • Consider introducing operational risk information plans with environmental risk notes for sites of nature conservation that are more susceptible to environmental damage. Where appropriate these plans should include: o Environmentally safe areas for deployments and movements of fire service resources o Identification of areas that are susceptible to physical environmental damage Tactical actions added - • Access any operational or site specific risk information and confirm accuracy • Ensure inaccuracies in risk information are resolved and systems updated post incident
