Your local neighbourhood policing team has been working with South Wales Fire and Rescue Service to combat grass fires around the Merthyr borough. PCSO's and fire wardens have been conducting high visibility foot and cycle patrols in order to deter youths from setting grass fires. PCSO's and fire wardens have also visited local youth clubs to educate the young people about the dangers of grass fires. This type of operation is an excellent example of what can be achieved by partnership working and it is hoped that more operations of this type can be held in the future.
