Fire Suppression methods
Different agencies around Australia have different ways of extinguishing fires in the relevant area.
To conserve fuel management, you can do the following:
If you live in an area which gets ravaged by bushfires on an annual basis like the Northern Territory, don't do things that can increase the severity of a fire
Even though it takes a little while for a cigarette to take effect if it is dropped don't drop it in a forest or a bush because if a fire starts from a dropped cigarette butt then if an external fire starts somewhere else, then both fires can form together to make a huge fire which gets out of contol very quickly and can cause multi million dollar damage
Don't light fires even small fires if you live in an area which has surrounding forests because wind can blow a flame and that can start a fire somewhere else.
