Fire Prevention Plan Webinar #2 – A Firefighter’s Perspective

Back

Posted in | by Sophie Crosswell, Peter Jones

This video is a recording of the second of three Fire Prevention Plan webinars presented by Eunomia during March 2017.

In this session, Peter Jones puts questions to Eunomia planning and permitting expert Sophie Crosswell and experienced firefighter Phil Pinches, with the aim of explaining how to make a fire prevention plan genuinely useful in minimising the impact of an incident. They discuss a range of issues including:

  • how to manage the substantial need for water to fight fires, and the firewater run off;
  • pile sizes
  • site access; and
  • handling sensitive receptors.

Sophie and Phil have worked together to develop and deliver fire prevention plan training for operators in Wales, and draw on their combination of practical experience and regulatory expertise.
