Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service and the Environmental Health department are urging people to cease having outdoor fires at this time.
This will reduce the strain on an already stretched resource, to ensure we can provide an effective Covid19 response during this health crisis.
In addition to an unnecessary burden on the Fire and Rescue Service, smoke from burning garden waste can often impact on neighbours, particularly those who are vulnerable and especially those who are unwell with respiratory illnesses. Please be thoughtful and neighbourly in these unusual circumstances.
Your thoughts and actions support us in helping everyone.
