Cylinders

Cylinders are a common risk at agricultural incidents, and can cause significant issues to firefighters:

Where there are unsafe cylinders involved in or adjacent to a fire, a safety cordon will be put in place whilst the cylinder is cooled and monitored. For acetylene and LPG cylinders, the cordon is 200m, so this could have impacts on the business involved and surrounding infrastructure, as well as potentially limiting the firefighting that can take place.

An owner may be liable for compensating anyone affected by this inconvenience – just think about the implications if you live near a mainline railway or major road, hotel or industrial estate!

How to manage cylinders

At a fire, give firefighters as much information as possible about what cylinders you have and where they are located.
