Rural-urban interface firefighting
Fire and Emergency Management has made a new video Rural-urban interface firefighting for the Victorian fire agencies.
It gives universal operating principles and tactical guidelines on rural-urban interface (RUI) firefighting across the country.
RUI plays a vital step in enhancing safety around asset protection and urban triage.
Our focus on RUI has come from a review of burnovers and entrapments which indicated a need to enhance awareness in the area of interface firefighting and situational awareness.
An RUI DVD will be given to each brigade in coming weeks, and you can watch the video online here.
