We all want to enjoy our beautiful green spaces so please make sure you know how to stop your actions from causing a wildfire and what to do if you spot one when you’re out and about.
Stay safe, tell us the location, size and any other relevant information – what’s on fire? Are there buildings or landmarks nearby?
Download what3words to your phone to help us locate fires quickly.
During periods of dry and warm weather there’s a greater risk of wildfires and these incidents can escalate rapidly, destroying wildlife and natural habitats, as well as tying up our firefighters and fire engines for many hours.
Fires on any heathland, particularly the New Forest, can pose a serious threat to lives and property.
Fires, BBQs (including purpose built and disposable BBQs), and outdoor cooking equipment (including stoves) are all banned within the New Forest.
