In Australia, the Australian Fire Service (AFS) is responsible for the firefighting effort, which is coordinated by the state and territory governments.
The firefighting systems used in Australia are the largest in the world.
Australia is the only country in the Western Hemisphere where all the major firefighting technologies are interoperable and widely available, and where firefighting operations are conducted at all times of the year, in weather conditions that suit local conditions and with limited access to remote or remote-controlled equipment.
The Australian Fire Protection Authority (AFPA) was created in 2013, and is responsible, as well, for fire protection for all the land, water and air in the country.
The AFPA is a statutory agency, and its functions are set out in the Fire and Rescue Services Act 1999 (Fire and Rescue Operations Act 1999).
The AFSA is responsible to the Australian Federal Government for the delivery of the fire fighting systems and firefighting equipment to local and state governments, the Commonwealth, and private companies.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is the regulatory body for the Australian firefighting industry.
Its functions are to oversee the implementation of the NFPA Act, the National Fire Control Strategy, and the fire protection standards and codes of practice.
Australia has more than 7,000 firefighting stations and about 1.3 million firefighters, with a total of about 17 million square kilometres of land and water, more than twice the size of the US state of New York.
The fires of the past few decades have been fuelled by a combination of natural and man-made factors.
Fires are the result of human behaviour, and these factors include poor climate, poor fire management, lack of fire infrastructure, inadequate funding, and inadequate infrastructure, which often results in fires burning out of control.
The most important fires that have occurred in Australia were caused by arson and arson-related incidents.
In addition to the many natural and human-caused fires, fires have been the result, in part, of a series of technological innovations.
These include the introduction of air-cooled firefighting vehicles and aircraft, which are designed to keep fires at bay; the development of air defence technology; the use of remote controlled firefighting robots; and the introduction and use of remotely operated firefighting and fire suppression systems.
Aircraft, firefighting helicopters and drones were developed for the first time during World War II, with the introduction in the 1970s of the Predator unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), and the development and deployment of helicopters in the late 1980s.
The introduction of fire suppression technology has enabled the AFS to use air-conditioned vehicles to combat fire and is a key part of its firefighting strategy.
The use of aerial reconnaissance has provided an important tool in monitoring fires, and air-monitoring equipment has provided invaluable firefighting information, including the location of fires and the number of homes affected.
Australia also has a number of ground-based firefighting facilities, which include firefighting towers, towers with automated monitoring, and fire-control towers.
Ground-based ground-fighting equipment is the most efficient and safest way to fight fires, since it is based on the observation of the situation and the ability of a trained ground-person to spot fires from a distance.
It has been reported that, in recent years, ground-level fires in the UK have become more prevalent due to increased use of aircraft to target and extinguish fires.
Aerial firefighting is the next generation of firefighting technology, as the introduction, and deployment, of fire fighting technology is increasing the effectiveness of Australia’s firefighting efforts.
This article provides an overview of the key firefighting devices and equipment available in Australia.
Keyfire systems In Australia’s national fire fighting system, ground based firefighting aircraft, fire-fighting helicopters, and drones are the primary means by which firefighting crews use the aircraft to fight fire.
A number of key fire fighting devices are available in all firefighting units in Australia, and are used to support the ground response to fires, to reduce the risk of fire spreading, and to assist firefighting teams in their response to fire.
Keyfires are the first line of defence for firefighting.
Key fires are located behind the aircraft and have a direct line of sight to the aircraft, meaning that the aircraft is always able to detect the source of the ignition.
A keyfire can be used to extinguish a fire, or to assist with the containment of a fire.
The first-line firefighting response is to use the keyfire, which fires in a controlled manner.
The aircraft then moves over the fire, using the key-fire to extinguishes the fire.
This allows the aircraft’s crew to return to their aircraft and take up their positions in a safe and effective manner.
A second-line response is used when a second fire is detected.
A third-line and fourth-line system can be
