Safety guide to farm fires.
Each year firefighters are called to around 60 incidents on farms in the region, ranging from small fires, to rescuing people trapped in machinery, to huge wildfires that can burn for a number of days.
Berwick Borough Council, Northumbria Police, the National Farmers' Union and Northumberland Fire & Rescue Service have joined forces to publish three safety booklets to try to curb such accidents.
The new safety advice booklets will be launched at Hetton Steads Farm, near Lowick, today.
The launch will be attended by a wide range of people from the Northumberland farming community, who will be given copies of the booklets.
