Cylinders

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

Where there are unsafe acetylene cylinders, a 200 metre area will be evacuated around the fire for a 24 hour period and firefighting may cease if it is unsafe. 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.
