Be a FireStopper

DATE PUBLISHED: 22 June 2021


Helping to tackle crime

Did you know that Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service (DFRS) has launched FireStoppers - a scheme that allows people to anonymously report known information about deliberate fire-setting?

Managed by the same charity that runs CrimeStoppers, FireStoppers, is an independent scheme focused on deliberate fires. It is accessed by calling a dedicated phone line where people with information can confidently leave details, knowing that their own identity will be protected.

Even small outdoor fires can be dangerous because they place an additional stress on the services limited resources. Dealing with a deliberate nuisance fire affects DFRS ability to respond to more serious incidents like house fires or road traffic accidents.

Station Manager Darren Perrott said: “In 2019/20 Firefighters responded to 874 deliberate fires across Derbyshire which not only tied up our resources, but also had a social and environmental impact on the communities affected by these deliberate acts.

“By providing an anonymous scheme where our communities can help us gather intelligence, we hope to see a positive impact on the number of deliberate fires we are called to attend in the future.”

Anyone with information about deliberate fires, no matter how big or small, can contact FireStoppers on 0800 169 5558 or via the website at firestoppersreport.co.uk in complete confidence.
