Gas use e.g. Hot Water

  • Where is hot water used? Who uses it and is it controlled automatically or manually?

  • Does it need to be hot water?

  • Are shut off solenoids and switches in place for NRFP?

  • Do we recover heat from hot water used or can it be collected and re-used?

LPG

  • Largely limited to FLT activity - Consider Use and Storage Conditions

Water

  • Is it applied in excess? e.g. multiple nozzles, no triggers, permanently on, jet rather than mist

  • Are shut off valves and solenoids in place for NRFP?

  • Look at blue and red hoses. Are they used? Are they in the right place? Are they leaking?

  • Where is water used? Who uses it and is it controlled automatically or manually?

Waste

  • Are there any wastes without an easy disposal route?
