Welcome from the Chief

Call before you burn!

As I have mentioned previously, we've been working hard in recent years to promote safe controlled burning by ensuring landowners and farmers take on board some basic safety procedures and notify the fire and rescue service when conducting their burn.

This year, we've been working with North Wales celebrity farmer Gareth Wyn Jones who has been helping to get our messages out to farmers.

We're visiting the livestock markets again this month and continue to urge all
landowners undertaking controlled burning to notify us by calling our control
room on 01931 522006.

This will help avoid false alarms and crews being sent out unnecessarily, as well as ensuring we are ready to respond in the event of a burn getting out of control.

We are also asking landowners to be responsible when it comes to controlled burning and to follow the Welsh Government's Heather and Grass Burning Code. These fires are often set in areas where access is extremely difficult and water supply is limited.

This campaign has resulted in some positive results with a substantial increase in the number of farmers calling to notify us of controlled burning - between October and mid November, the calls notifying us of controlled burning rose by 185 (56%) - from 425 during the same period in 2014 to 610 this year.

A big thank you to everyone who has called in and all who have supported this
