Something good will come from this, and I believe that the revised SWF will be better able to support the need to prepare for wildfire. I hold the view that planning for wildfire will reduce the risks to life and the risk of disruption to communities, businesses and the environment close to wildfires.
A Wildfire Manual has been prepared and will be published soon. Although this is an operational guidance for the SFRS, it will provide soon-off documents that will provide wider benefits. It is possible that the Wildfire Manual will be formally launched at the Wildfire 2013 conference that is being held in South Wales 22-23 October 2013.
