When determining how best to protect a piece of heavy off-road equipment from the threat of fire, a Fire Risk Assessment is the most indispensable procedure one can use. This process entails an evaluation of the main hazards of a specific machine and its operating environment. The assessment provides a decision-making framework to help one evaluate a vehicle's risk potential, implement changes to mitigate those risks, and, when deemed necessary, to design and install a fire suppression system that appropriately addresses those risks. It is so helpful, the US National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has a guide to explain and encourage its use.
