Firefighters called to 77 deliberate fires in Canklow

by Admin

Over a 12 month period South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue have been called to Canklow 77 times

40 of those are false alarms, but 33 are deliberate fires including vehicles, bins, furniture and trees.

False alarms are costly and disruptive to the fire service, where crews are required to mobilise and respond to a non-existent emergency’s, wasting resources and time could potentially endanger people who need emergency help.

A spokesperson for the force said “You can help tackle arson by contacting FireStoppers and sharing what you know about deliberate fires in your area.”

“The service, much like its sister Crimestoppers, is completely anonymous.”

“All you need to do is call our dedicated phone number, 0800 169 5558, or fill out our online form on www.firestoppersreport.co.uk.”
