UK unready as wildfires surge, warns firefighters' union

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

The UK is "woefully underprepared" to tackle wildfires as climate change makes them more likely, a new report by the Fire Brigades Union warns.

There were more than 44,000 wildfires last year - an increase of 72% on the previous year, according to government figures out this month.

The FBU is now calling for a UK-wide wildfire strategy for fire and rescue services that sets national standards.

It said that, at present, there is a "postcode lottery of wildfire response".
