Even small outdoor fires can be dangerous, because they place additional stress on our limited resources – dealing with a nuisance fire affects our ability to respond to more serious incidents like house fires or road traffic accidents.
Firestoppers gives people an anonymous way to report what they know about deliberate firesetting. It’s managed by the independent charity CrimeStoppers, who remove all details that could be used to identify the person who has contacted them before passing the report to the police.
