Stay Safe this Spring!

With Winter coming to an end, and Spring on the horizon, we traditionally see an increase in the number of deliberate fires across our region. Over the last two years, our firefighters responded to 1445 deliberate fires, 1168 grass fires and 444 refuse fires. We want to ensure that in 2022 the public enjoy the Spring weather and recognise the impact such fires might have on their lives, the environment and communities.

Everyone should be aware of the heightened risk of wildfires and grassland fires at this time of year and people should act safely and responsibly and follow the countryside code. The best protection against loss, damage or injury due to wildfire and grassland fire is prevention. Here are some really useful tips and safety advice you can take to make your home less attractive to burglary whilst you are away.

Countryside Safety

In Mid and West Wales, we boast some of the most varied stunning scenery in the country. We'd like your help to keep it that way.
