Control measure knowledge

To ensure that personnel inside the vehicle and their movement do not make any instability worse, the numbers of emergency responders should be controlled, taking fire and rescue service and other emergency service personnel into account, along with any casualties.

Strategic actions

Fire and rescue services should:
  • Develop rescue procedures considering the deployment of minimum numbers of personnel required to avoid affecting stability

Tactical actions

Incident commanders should:
  • Minimise the number of personnel operating in the vehicle or craft to minimise effect on stability
