Fire mitigation on buses is seen as a key safety issue for bus operators and drivers, bus suppliers and manufacturers, bus passengers and government agencies at all levels.
Currently every week in Australia at least one bus experiences a potentially fatal fire incident. The potential for a fatal bus fire
in Australia does exist, especially for buses operating in high density urban environments or in traffic tunnels.
This Advisory has been developed as part of a joint project undertaken by the Bus Industry Confederation (BIC) and the Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia transport authorities, to capture in one document the key actions to reduce the frequency and severity of fire on buses.”
