Business & Community Engagement.

The Peak District National Park Fire Operations Group were formed after a serious moorland wildfire in 1996 and exist to coordinate wildfire management across the Park.  The group 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 its consequences, and train for emergencies.    

Building on a previous collaboration for the Defra-funded Climate Change and the Visitor Economy (CCVE) project, we worked with the group to develop a moorland wildfire risk map for the Park (2004-2007), attended training exercises and helped to revise reporting proforma.
