There is valuable Fire Safety information provided via the above link that will enable you to reduce risk while in the forest or as an owner of a small forest plantation. It is very important that you ensure that you have adequate insurance cover to protect you from personal and business risk in the event of a fire. 

In case of fire your first call in New Zealand is always 111
