Welcome from the Chief Fire Officer
Stamping out deliberate fires
With the lighter nights and warmer weather upon us, I’m making an appeal to parents to be more aware of the whereabouts of their children and help us to prevent deliberate fires.
Deliberate fires endanger the lives of the public and firefighters, they delay fire crews from attending genuine emergencies, and cost the Welsh economy millions of pounds.
Working with partners
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service has been working hard to drive down deliberate fires over recent years through a dedicated joint Arson Reduction Team with North Wales Police – working to a Wales Arson Reduction Strategy which provides a clear focus for organisations and individuals working together to reduce deliberate fires across Wales.
Collaboration, multi agency working and community involvement is key to our strategy. By working together to tackle deliberate fires we have demonstrated that education and intervention is key to making a positive difference.
It’s a criminal offence
Setting fires is a criminal offence and we are actively working alongside North Wales Police to combat deliberate incidents.
You can follow our campaign to reduce deliberate fires on Twitter by following #helpstopdeliberatefires and on our website.
Also, take a look at our You Tube channel nwalesfireservice and watch the videos ‘A night to remember’ and ‘Burning your future’, which demonstrate the devastating consequences of deliberate firestarting.
How to report it
Anyone with information on such crimes is advised to anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or contact 101.
