Help prevent Peak moorland fires

The Peak District National Park Authority is urging residents to help prevent moorland fires, as the hot dry weather continues.

Rangers and land managers are erecting fire warning signs at car parks and key locations used by the public.

People are asked not to light barbecues or campfires or drop cigarette ends and to take litter home, when they visit the moors.

The Peak District Fires Operations Group, which involves six fire and rescue services and major landowners along with the National Park Authority, is on standby to tackle any blaze in a remote area.
