This assessment examines the hazards, risks and control measures relating to Fire and Rescue Service personnel, the personnel of other agencies and members of the public when fighting fires in open rural locations including grass, moorland, crop and forest fires.

Significant hazards and risks which face Fire and Rescue Service personnel at rural area fires are included in chapters within this GRA:
  • Environmental conditions
  • Terrain
  • Non-service equipment, personnel
  • Insects and animals
  • Movement of vehicles
  • Military ranges and hunting/shooting areas
  • Open water
  • Pylons/overhead power lines
  • Manual handling and heavy physical work
  • Stacked materials.

Depending on the nature and scale of the operational incident a variety of significant hazards may be present. Therefore contents of other specific Generic Risk Assessments may also need to be considered.

As with all GRAs, this assessment provides a starting point for each FRS to conduct their own assessments and produce their own Safe Systems of Work within the context of local conditions and existing organisational arrangements.

This GRA is supplied as an A4, loose-leaf publication. A binder pack containing an introduction to the series, foreword by Sir Ken Knight, contents, and dividers is available to order separately. The binder is the ideal solution for storing these loose-leaf GRAs.
