Controlled burning

It would be really helpful if people could avoid having bonfires during this coronavirus lockdown period. While we know that the current weather makes getting out in the garden very tempting, lots of the false alarms we attend are caused by bonfires. Equally, bonfires can get out of control very easily. Please help us to help you, by reducing any activity that could lead to us being called out.

The Fire and Rescue Service is regularly called to fires which members of the public believe to be emergencies but, on attendance, are found to be bonfires or land clearance.

Such calls cause a drain on our resources and put both the public and firefighters at risk when we respond under ‘blue light’ conditions.

If you are going to have a bonfire, or another type of controlled burning that will be visible to passers-by, you can let our Fire Control know by completing an online notification.

Control will want to know the exact location of your fire, the times you are planning on letting the fire burn, and a contact number for you, or whoever will be responsible for the site. This will help us to avoid mobilising crews to you unnecessarily.

Please let us know if you are planning:

If you have concerns about the environmental impacts of bonfires, such as smoke, you will need to contact your local council:
