Ineffective communications: Above ground structures
Communication with crews working on non-building and temporary structures may be ineffective because of distance, interference and barriers. If this may happen, incident commanders must ensure they make provisions to maintain communication. Where this is not possible, they must put in place procedures to withdraw teams if there is a communications failure.
