The probabilistic criterion of assessment of fire safety of oil and gas industrial facilities exposed to the influence of active forest fires in the adjoining area is examined. Various scenarios of thermal effect of forest fires on constructional materials of industrial facilities are described. The function of the criterion is demonstrated using a simplified deterministic thermophysical constructional material ignition model. The results of model calculations of the probability of occurrence of fire at industrial facilities are reported.
