Message from North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service

Last year North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service saw a spike in deliberate fires over the Easter holidays and we’d like to see a reduction in those numbers this year.

Parents can help us with this by checking on their children’s plans and keeping matches and lighters somewhere that isn’t easily accessible.

Deliberately starting fires is against the law, and even small fires can endangers lives. Fire spreads quickly and can be unpredictable.

If any parents have concerns that their child has a fascination with fire they can make a confidential referral to us through our firesetter network by calling (freephone) 0800 074 0064 or emailing
