Grass Fires Kill !
Prolonged periods of warm, dry weather, especially at this time of year, can increase the risk of grass fires. Unfortunately, some fires are started deliberately. People’s lives and property are at risk as grass fires can spread at a dangerous and uncontrollable speed. Wildlife and vegetation are killed and destroyed.
Grass fires can have a very serious and devastating effect on the Fire Service resources. Fire Fighters can spend many hours trying to extinguish grass fires which puts a huge strain on the availability of fire crews to deal with other incidents.
We would urge parents to highlight the dangers of grass fires to your children.
