A salvage plan is a document that identifies objects that need to be removed and how this should be done. It helps our firefighters to:

  • Identify the items of historical value.
  • Find specific items to be removed first.
  • Know how to safely remove the items.
  • Know their way around the building.

We have created these simple templates for you to use:

Your local fire safety office will be glad to discuss any queries you have. This will help you and us to plan for any potential incidents by assessing the problems (such as access and poor water supplies).
