National Wildfire Prevention Toolkit

This toolkit has been written and compiled by Alan Clark, retired Area Commander from Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, on behalf of the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) Wildfire Group. It provides a range of tools to help fire and rescue services, key stakeholders and partner agencies prevent and reduce the impact of wildfires.

Wildfires pose a significant risk to the safety of firefighters, and to members of the public. They are a growing problem in the UK, and have a huge impact on property, infrastructure, the environment, and the economy.

The National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) works nationally to ensure the UK’s response to wildfire preparation has a structured and holistic approach. The key focus of this work is to emphasise and promote close partnership with all key stakeholders.

The Wildfire Prevention Toolkit represents a collection of best practice available from around the world.

The Toolkit is divided into chapters which can be viewed on Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service’s website. There are links to each of the separate chapters on their website below too:

A significant number of documents have been gathered to form the toolkit. If you are interested in receiving copies of these supporting documents, or would like to find out more about the toolkit, please contact Robert Stacey via email at
