East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is calling on the public to help protect our countryside from fire

As part East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service’s Safer Summer campaign, they are reminding members of the public of the impact that fires in the countryside have.

Every year in the UK, 1,700 farm buildings and 66,000 acres of grassland are destroyed by fire.

As the weather improves, the Service sees a rise in fires in the open. These can be extremely difficult to control and puts lives and property in danger.

Guidance on how you can enjoy the countryside safely and help to prevent fires can be found on their Safer Summer page at:
