In these challenging times, some fire and rescue services have reported a spike in deliberate fires. With firefighters working hard to ensure the safety of the community, and doing their upmost to protect the most vulnerable, it is important for building owners or building managers of unoccupied premises to do what they can to prevent their premises becoming a target for vandals and arsonists.
