Bryher Firefighters Called Out

Bryher

Bryher firefighters got their first call out in over a year and a half on Monday evening.

Three of the retained firemen came out to extinguish a small grass fire after a resident burning rubbish away from their property realised a patch of land was ablaze.

They were at the scene, near New Park, for around 30 minutes.

    We have had a few shouts this year.

      Thanks for correcting that Kim.

      We got the info from the Council General Purposes Committee Meeting report from 15th June 2011 (http://committees.scilly.gov.uk/mgConvert2PDF.aspx?ID=1366&T=9) page 9 shows all the call-outs since 2010. Obviously the other incidents weren’t reported or have happened since March this year!
