People across the globe must by now be aware of the terrible situation in parts of South Australia. Bush fires are ravaging this beautiful area, which has been given ‘catastrophic’ or ‘extreme fire danger’ ratings. The worst hit locations have been Kangaroo Island, Mount Lofty Ranges and the lower south-east, rated catastrophic. Extreme fire danger is forecast for lower Eyre Peninsula, the mid-north, and Yorke Peninsula.
A catastrophic, or red rating indicates bushfires which are not survivable, the rating being created in Victoria in 2009 after Black Saturday bushfires claimed 173 lives. These types of situation prompt evacuation orders even before a fire has started. This is because there is no question whether a fire will happen or not, it’s virtually guaranteed. Anybody living in a rural area or small village in the vicinity are advised to move elsewhere temporarily.
This kind of fire affects many other parts of the world also, although thankfully not always on this scale. There were 96 wild fires in the UK in 2019, even before the month of May had arrived. Fires across land and mountains impacted several areas of the UK and parts of Wales for instance were hit hard. The conditions in Wales such as open spaces, and winds are ideal for fires to become a problem.
As most fire fighting teams know all too well, swift, effective action is required in these circumstances. Skill and knowledge go along way towards successfully dealing with these disastrous events, along with the right chemicals to slow and distinguish a major fire.
Specialists ABC Macintosh, manufacture a range of fire extinction chemicals that have been highly successful at bringing devastating fires under control. At the same time as tackling these awful occurrences, the chemicals used are environmentally friendly, and will not cause any negative effects.

Let’s hope it isn’t too long before the terrible situation in Australia comes to an end for all concerned.
