Wildfires

Wildfires can be very dangerous, spreading quickly, changing direction and threatening people, wildlife, livestock, domestic animals and property. Following these simple steps will reduce the number of incidents.

Wildfires

  • Extinguish cigarettes properly and don’t throw cigarette ends on the ground
  • Talk to young people about the dangers of lighting fires
  • Do not leave bottles or glass in woodland – sunlight shining through glass can start fires (take them home and recycle them)
  • Do not leave barbecues unattended and only light them in designated areas
