Control measure

Operational risk information plan (Nature conservation sites)

Control measure knowledge

Although each nature conservation site will have its own environmental damage risks which can be captured with individual operational risk plans, a set of generic action plans will also help to identify generic environmental protection action to be taken in the early stages of an incident. See Section 2.6.5, Environmental Protection Handbook.

Strategic actions

Fire and rescue services should:
  • 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:

    • Environmentally safe areas for deployments and movements of fire service resources
    • Identification of areas that are susceptible to physical environmental damage

Tactical actions

All personnel should:
  • Ensure that all relevant incident information is relayed to the incident commander
