Action on deliberate fires
Unfortunately, the warm weather often brings an increase in
small deliberate fires across the region - these fires may be small
in size but may have very significant consequences.
Last month we experienced deliberate fires across North Wales
during the Easter holidays and we're undertaking a concerted
campaign with our partners to tackle this. In Blaenau Ffestiniog,
we've been using information boards appealing for residents to
report deliberate fire starters, with extra patrols by Police to
tackle a spate of fires in the area.
We're teaming up with our partners in hotspot areas across North
Wales to address this unacceptable form of anti-social behaviour -
deliberate fire starting ties up resources that could be saving
lives elsewhere, and puts the lives of both the public and
firefighters at risk.
That is why this month in support of Arson Awareness Week
(18th-22nd May) our young cadets from the
Young Firefighters Association will be participating in litter
picks across the region to highlight the dangers of deliberate
fires, in collaboration with North Wales Police and Keep Wales
So please support our campaign this month and be vigilant to
help us stamp out deliberate fire starting by reporting any
information to North Wales Police on 101 or alternatively calling
0845 607 1001 (Welsh line) 0845 607 1002 (English line) or
Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
