South Wales Fire and Rescue Service have advised farmers who are planning to ‘burn off’ their land, that they now have a dedicated Wildfire Station to assist them.
While the vast majority of these burnings are done under safe conditions, on limited occasions fires can become too large to manage or out of control with farmers having insufficient resources to deal with them. South Wales Fire and Rescue Service are actively looking to engage with local farmers and can offer advice and practical assistance by carrying out controlled burning for them.
If you would like assistance with controlled burning on your land, please contact the Fire Crime Unit on 0800 731 7287, where they will be able to direct you to the appropriate Station Commander.
