Grass and Gorse Fires

The potential for serious damage to our environment, often in sensitive areas, by the impact of countryside fires is a serious concern.

The impact of deliberate fire setting undermines social and economic confidence and draws on resources which could be utilised more effectively elsewhere.

The Arson Reduction team aims to -

  • To reduce the number of countryside fires which are deliberately set.

Change the attitude of the community towards the deliberate setting of countryside fires.

Take a multi-agency partnership approach to address this issue.

Ensure a consistent message is delivered to our communities on countryside fires.

Support youth groups to deliver diversionary activities for young people.
