National Operational Guidance: Wildfires

This guidance is produced by the National Fire Chiefs Council for fire and rescue services throughout the UK for training purposes. It contains the following sections: Introduction; LACES safety protocol; Hazard- Inaccurate situational awareness; Hazard- Fire behaviour; Hazard- Undetected firespread; Hazard- Insufficient resources; Hazard- Failure to work safely; Hazard- Scene of operations; Hazard- Physiological stress; Hazard- Moving vehicles; Hazard- Inappropriate aircraft use, and Hazard- Environmental Impact. It is intended to complement the 2013 Scottish Government's Wildfire Operational Guidance (also in the Wildfire collection) which addresses wildfires in a wider context.
