Reduce the intensity of a fire.
The purpose of a firebreak is to provide an area of reduced fuel load which will reduce the intensity of a fire and therefore allow for more effective combating and to also serve as a line from which a back burn can be started.
Working on Fire has 20-years worth of experience in all types of firebreak creation. Through a vast network, we supply professionally trained and fully equipped crews for any kind of firebreak planning and creation to any international location. When implemented in foreign countries Working on Fire develops local capacity through training and skills transfer.
External firebreaks provide fire protection on the boundaries of a property. Taking into account that properties border natural vegetation, public roads or railway lines, rural or farming communities, urban-interface areas of cities, or industrial sites, which all present varying degrees of fire hazard, external firebreaks acts as a barrier to slow or stop the progress of a fire.
External firebreaks can be provided in various ways, including regular burning of grassland or other bordering vegetation, adding prescribed burned stands, ploughing of firebreaks, scraping of firebreaks or hand-clearing fire breaks.
