Wildfire warning issued following drier weather

Sat, 26 May 2018

The Manx public is being urged to take care in the countryside due to the heightened risk of wildfire.

The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture and the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service warns that warmer drier weather means vegetation could easily catch fire and spread quickly.

DEFA is appealing for those taking to the countryside to make sure cigarettes are discarded carefully and fires extinguished properly.

The public is advised not to light bonfire, camp fires or barbecues near combustible vegetation, not to release Chinese Lanterns and take glass bottles home as discarded bottles can ignite fires.
