Accidental fires can destroy habitats and erode the landscape.
The Fire Operations Group was formed in 1996 after a serious moorland blaze. It brings together a partnership of six fire services, national park rangers, National Trust wardens, water companies, major landowners and gamekeepers to draw up fire plans, oversee specialist fire-fighting equipment, raise awareness of moorland fires and the consequences and train for emergencies.
Sadly, since this video was taken, Sean Prendergast has passed away. He died in March this year after a short illness.
The Fire Operations Group:
Occasionally, access to moorland is suspended due to the high risk of fires and this is determined by the Fire Severity Index which is compiled by the Met Office and managed by Natural England.
