Reduce fire loss. The 2014 NFPA 1143 guides communities and agencies toward successful wildland fire management.
Every year, wildland fire incidents in North America pose increasing threats to adjacent communities, often overwhelming the resources of local first responders. The 2014 NFPA 1143: Standard for Wildland Fire Management provides requirements related to prevention, mitigation, preparation, and suppression of fires in the wildland and wildland urban interface (WUI).
The new 2014 edition of NFPA 1143 includes:
- Updated cross-references throughout the document
- Updated figures that provide examples of modern equipment being utilized for wildland fire management such as dozers, helicopters, and air tankers.
This important document helps fire departments and state/federal land management agencies:
- Determine what factors should be considered when developing a written risk/hazard assessment and mitigation plan
- Develop plans for fire response, preparedness, finances, safety, and training of personnel
- Identify what management practices should be followed in the management of wildland fire incidents
- Know what post-incident activities should be conducted
Local government and volunteer fire departments should use this edition to develop an approach consistent with today's NFPA® standards on emergency services incident management and disaster management programs, and to keep current with fire fighter safety practices. (Softbound, 37 pp., 2014)
