Insufficient resources: Wildfire

Hazard Knowledge

Wildfire incidents often need a multi-agency response and in many cases may require specialist teams and equipment. The resources required include people, knowledge, skills and equipment, which may need to be sourced internally, from other fire and rescue services or from external agencies. It may also be necessary to request National Resilience assets and/or military aid.

The scale and impact of wildfires can be substantial and the correct and timely deployment of resources is of significant importance for a successful resolution. Without the required resources, wildfires may become more protracted and damaging.
