Fire Safety Preparedness

This manual is to provide an ongoing reference to the Fire Safety Preparedness Programme. It is important that personnel keep it readily available so that it can be referred to when necessary.

Little reference has been made to Acts, Regulations or Australian Standards and this is intentional. Fire Safety Preparedness is more often than not the application of common sense and this is the approach that is actively encouraged. The right attitude to Fire Safety Preparedness cannot be legislated, and can only be developed through a genuine spirit of cooperation and good intentions. It is with this theme that this manual is written.

The typical content of the Fires Safety Preparedness Manual is:
Aim and Competencies
Interaction with other Emergency Systems
Principles of Combustion, Prevention and Extinction
Causes of Fire
Fire Safety Procedures
Equipment Maintenance
Classes of Fires
Risk Identification
Operation of Fire Extinguishers
Subject Index

The kit includes:

include other transparencies that can be used as appropriate by the Facilitator.
