This guidance document has been compiled by Natural Resources Wales in collaboration with the Fire and Rescue Services in Wales:
- South Wales Fire and Rescue Service
- Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service and
- North Wales Fire and Rescue Service
Both NRW and the Fire and Rescue Services in Wales will use this guidance to assess the suitability and appropriateness of fire prevention and mitigation measures at permitted waste facilities.
The guidance has been produced using increased industry and Fire & Rescue Service experience when fighting real waste fires, and improved knowledge as a result of a series of burn tests carried out in 2015 and throughout 2016 by WISH (Waste Industry Safety and Health Forum) supported by CFOA (Chief Fire Officers Association).
If you would like to comment on these proposed guidance, please write us by 11th August 2017. Comments should be submitted to:
