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
