Too often, rural communities wake on a Monday morning and have to count the cost of another weekend of forest and moorland fires
Too often, local Fire and Rescue teams, usually staffed by part time or volunteers, are putting their life on the line extinguishing these fires
Too often, peoples livelihoods are damaged or destroyed by irresponsible and reckless behaviour

The aim of this group is to encourage and persuade retailers, local and national, to voluntarily remove these items from sale, immediately.
