Countryside Fire Safety

  •  Avoid fires in the countryside. Always have them in safe, designated areas.Moor fire
  • Put out cigarettes and other smoking materials properly before you leave your vehicle.
  • Never throw cigarette ends out of car windows- they could start a fire and ruin the surrounding countryside.
  • Don't leave bottles or glass in woodlands. Sunlight shining through glass can start a fire. Take then home or put them in a waste or recycling bin.
  • If you see a fire in the countryside, report it immediately.
  • Don't attempt to tackle fires that can't be put out with a bucket of water- leave the area as soon as possible.
