- Statistics & Research
An annual report which includes information on type of fire, casualties, damage and source.
- The Welsh Fire and Rescue Services attended 2,142 grassland, woodland and crop fires in 2012-13, a decrease of 56 per cent on 2011-12. Although the numbers of these fires are prone to fluctuation, this figure is the lowest figure since 2001-02 and are likely to have been influenced by the weather conditions seen in 2012-13. Met Office data shows that the year 2012-13 had the most rain for more than the previous ten years.
- In 2012-13, there were 61 primary grassland, woodland and crop fires, a fall of 76 per cent compared with the previous year, and 2,081 secondary grassland, woodland and crop fires, a fall of 55 per cent.
- In 2012-13 more than four-fifths of primary and secondary fires on grassland, woodland and crop were started deliberately.
- Around seven in ten grassland, woodland and crop fires occurred in the spring months April, May and March in 2012 13.
- Of the grassland, woodland and crop fires in 2012-13, 53 per cent were in South Wales, 34 per cent were in Mid and West Wales and 13 per cent were in North Wales.
- There were 5 non-fatal casualties but no fatal casualties from grassland, woodland and crop fires in Wales in 2012-13. The last fatality resulting from a grassland fire occurred in 2007-08.
