Deliberate Fire. Definite Danger

Deliberate grass and bin fires take up a large amount of our Firefighters’ time from Easter through to September. On average we attend 412 deliberate grass and bin fires during the Easter and summer holidays. In addition to this, damage caused by these fires can cost up to £8 million per year. Our crews could be putting out these avoidable grass and bin fires when they should be helping someone whose life may be in danger at a house fire or road traffic collision.
