Fire Suppression

Working on Fire provide a range of operationally proven integrated firefighting tactics to suppress wildfires. Resources include aerial and ground teams and equipment coordinated and controlled by an Incident Command System.

Incident Command System (ICS)

Ensure optimal Cooperation and Communication

Manage and control firefighting resources effectively.

The Incident Command System is a vital emergency management tool used by emergency services to ensure the standardisation and efficiency in resolving an event. It is designed to ensure optimal cooperation and communication between different organisations and stakeholders and integrates resources, procedures and communications operations within a common organisational structure.

Working on Fire has over 20-years of operational experience in implementing ICS as part of an Integrated Fire Management System and can provide ICS solutions to effectively mitigate large-scale incidents.
