Action on deliberate fires
The warm weather also usually brings an increase in small
deliberate fires across the region - these fires may be small in
size but may have very significant consequences.
We're teaming up with our partners in hotspot areas across North
Wales to tackle this unnacceptable form of anti social behaviour -
deliberate firestarting ties up resources that could be saving
lives elsewhere, and puts the lives of both the public and
firefighters at risk.
When crews are called to attend life critical incidents such as
house fires and road traffic collisions, appliances are not
diverted from this type of deliberate fire, the next available fire
appliance is sent . This may involve a time delay which could prove
I am appealing to the public to be vigilant and help us stamp
out deliberate firestarting 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.
