Measuring the impact of fire on the environment

Measuring the impact of fire on the environment

In Sweden the responsibility for damage to the environment at a fire incident is increasingly focussing on the responders. Most incident response personnel do not have the training and expertise to understand the environmental consequences of their field operations. The Fire Impact tool was developed for training responders about the environmental impacts resulting from their actions. A process was also developed by which the environmental advantages and disadvantages of fire protection systems can be analysed.
