Control measure

Request and mobilise internal and external resources

Control measure knowledge

Fire and rescue services should understand the requirements of the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 and, in particular, collaborate with local emergency planning groups and partner agencies to identify local risks. This collaboration should include an understanding of the contribution the fire and rescue service and other agencies make to the community risk register. Fire and rescue services should understand the relationship between their risk management plan and the community risk register, and understand the arrangements for obtaining Site-Specific Risk Information (SSRI) and developing wildfire fire plans.

Refer to National Operational Guidance: Operations for information on how to request and mobilise internal and external resources.
