Police Service of Northern Ireland

The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA), Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and Ulster Farmers Union (UFU) are asking farmers, land managers and the public for their help during the current dry weather spell.

As the dry weather continues, DAERA, NIFRS, PSNI and UFU are once again advising visitors to rural areas, as well as residents, to act responsibly and be vigilant for wildfires especially over this bank holiday weekend.

Environment Minister Edwin Poots MLA said: “The recent wildfire in the Mournes on Donard Mountain has shown how quickly a wildfire can spread creating significant risk to life and property while causing extensive environmental damage and diverting the emergency services resources away from where they are most needed, protecting and serving the community.
