Prevention Better than Cure
The presentations from last year's wildfire conference are now available to download.
The actions and lessons learned during the conference will provide a focus for the work of the Scottish Wildfire Forum, this year, and work will soon need to start to prepare for the next conference, which is likely to be held in 2017.
With the weather set fair this week, there is a good chance for muirburn plans to be put into action. Even after all the wet weather of the winter, the vegetation can dry very quickly at this time of year and I urge care so that we do not end up with a spate of wildfires.
