1. Monitor Weather Conditions
Certain weather conditions can create fires by themselves, however human activities can aggravate the situation. High temperatures raise flammability of dry grass, leaves and litter. Strong winds facilitate the spread of wildfires and lightning strikes can be an ignition source in dry forests and open grasslands.
It is crucial to understand wildfire hazards resulting from natural factors. When planning regular operations, natural factors should be constantly monitored and taken into account to ensure that you and your team are prepared for any scenario.
2. Be Proactive
Fires usually spring upon us. Therefore, being proactive is key in the life-or-death situation. You can be proactive by having smoke detectors in place, as well as an evacuation plan with fire extinguishers accessible, en-route and at key points. Ensure Emergency numbers, particularly medical help, are familiarised and all hazardous waste and stock is kept in fireproof secure locations.
3. Ensure Your Team Are Properly Protected
