Cumbria Fire Rescue Service performs a variety of functions to keep members of the public safe, whether they are residents or visitors to the county. Working in close collaboration with partner organisations in 2020 we attended nearly 4000 incidents from domestic property fires and road traffic collisions to wildfires and flooding’s. CFRS carried out over 200 water rescues between 2015 and 2020. Wildfires are becoming a growing problem across the country, with CFRS responding to numerous incidents in Cumbria and across the north of England.

Keswick Mountain Festival will give us the opportunity to speak to those who use and love the outdoors about all aspect of outdoor safety.
