Fire raising in the Mayfield area

Alert message sent 14/03/2019 13:14:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland

Following an increase in the number of deliberate fires in the Mayfield area of Dalkeith please consider the following:

Deliberately set fires are dangerous; they waste time and money, and keep our crews away from real emergencies.

You can join Scotland’s fight against fire by:

  • Being aware of strangers loitering in your street – if they do so for some time, inform Police Scotland on the non-emergency number 101.

  • Contacting Police Scotland via the non-emergency number 101 to share information on anyone who deliberately sets fires. Alternatively, give the information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

  • Reporting any build-up of rubbish to your local authority or community fire station. This will help ensure it can be removed and prevent fires.

  • Ensuring you are aware of where the children or young people you look after are – and what they’re doing.

  • Making sure that children and young people are aware of the risks of playing with fire and the consequences of deliberately setting a fire.

  • Reporting any fly-tipping directly to your local authority or to the National Dumb Dumpers Stop line on 0845 230 40 90.
    Deliberate fire-setting is an offence and anyone with information regarding fire setters can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    Thank you SFRS.
