Conditions in tunnels under construction
Fire and rescue service personnel need to consider the potentially limited intervention they can make at incidents in tunnels or other underground structures under construction. The need to wait for additional core and specialist resources will inevitably add pressure to crews and incident commanders to take action and this may increase the overall risk to personnel.
