Any port area is a high fire-risk area, both because of the cargoes passing through (whether liquid or solid) and because of the intrinsic features of the wharves and the ships that dock there. In some cases this potential danger is increased by the fact that the port is an integral part of a city. Some ports are so much part of a town that incoming or outgoing port traffic may obstruct everyday city traffic or even bring it to a standstill. An inevitable consequence of this is delay in the arrival of rescue vehicles in the event of an emergency.
