Welcome from the Chief

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 Tidy.

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.
