Further to your recent request to East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service for
details on wildfires. I would just like to seek some clarification. 

 

Our Strategy Development team have a list of category types that they
record into the IRS reporting system.  These are in the attached
document.  Could you have a look at the document and confirm if you are
happy to go along with all the listed categories as to what constitutes a
wildfire.

 

Kind regards
