FireWatch fulfils mission and closes down for winter
In September Operation FireWatch ended as the weather cooled and the rain came down. During the hot, dry summer 80 volunteers were stationed at moorland vantage points throughout the Peak District National Park and South Pennines to look out for fires.
The campaign could not have gone ahead without the willingness and dedication of staff and volunteers. In total 153 shifts were covered, equalling more than 340 hours. A huge thank you to everyone who was involved!
