Line of Fire

Keep yourself and others out of the line of fire

Line of Fire is one of the nine Life Saving Rules.

Keep yourself and others out of the line of fire:

🔺 I position myself to avoid:

  • moving objects
  • vehicles
  • pressure releases
  • dropped objects

🔺 I establish and obey barriers and exclusion zones

🔺 I take action to secure loose objects and report potential dropped objects.
