Bus and coach stations risk review

Many of us use buses and coaches routinely, maybe as often as daily, but we rarely stop to think of the cost of a new vehicle or the impact that a fire involving the loss of a vehicle would have on the continuity of the business. Even greater is the impact of a fire in a bus or coach station or garage, if several vehicles are involved - a bus or coach on fire releases an enormous quantity of heat, with the potential for the fire to spread to adjacent vehicles.

In this article, Adair Lewis analyses data relating to large-loss fires in bus and coach stations.

Topics covered:

• Large loss.

• Fire hazards.

• Fire statistics.

• Case history.
