Control measure

Carry out external surveys

Control measure knowledge

External surveys will be necessary to identify internal and external firespread. External surveys should also be used to look for signs of collapse.

Safety officers should be appointed at appropriate locations within sectors, to ensure all potential areas of the structure affected are monitored.

Tactical actions

Incident commanders should:
  • Consider appointing safety officers to monitor structural stability and firespread
  • Ensure access and egress routes remain uncompromised

  • Consider evacuating surrounding buildings that may be affected by firespread
