BUSHFIRE BATTLE PLAN

This is a self defence battle plan. It controls what you do when under bushfire attack and where you patrol and extinguish. It might include the following:

·        Keep fuel beds non flammable (they can dry quickly in the hot winds)

·        Patrol and monitor building, vehicles and flammable beds

·        Extinguish spotfires within high priority zone

Stay in your high priority suppression zone until spot fires cease, and then move to extinguish in lower priority areas.

Have a back up plan for people, equipment and escape route.
