PUAFIR220 Respond to isolated structure fire

This unit covers the competency required to respond to an isolated structure fire when working as a member of a team under direct supervision. An ‘isolated structure’ refers to a free-standing building or manmade construction, such as a homestead or farm machinery shed. With an isolated structure, the possibility of fire spread between the structure itself and other structures or property not directly involved in the fire is generally low.
