Bridport along with various other stations have been trying to keep on top of the hotspots and flare ups all day in Wareham Forest. The wind is causing problems and the incident commander has now put an assistance message in to “make pumps 15” and requested a helicopter from Wales to assist.

DWFireRescue is asking the public to not undertake prescribed or controlled burns unless it is absolutely necessary to minimise the potential for #wildfires. Please help us as we deal with additional pressures & challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic #COVID19

Please see the Latest update following fire investigation at wearham.

Please think and take care when your out enjoying the countryside. You can see it only takes an accident to destroy beautiful area.

Following a fire investigation, which has been ongoing since Monday, we now believe the cause of this fire to be accidental, due to social activity in the forest. While we cannot pinpoint the exact cause, we have found evidence of multiple disposable barbecues, campfires and glass bottles.

Due to the current weather and weekend forecast, we have received an AMBER alert for wildfire. This means that, should we experience another wildfire, it could spread quickly and easily due to the dry and windy conditions. As we have seen here, wildfires take a great deal of resources and time to bring under control. Please stay fire-aware when out and about and please stay vigilant.

In light of all of this, PLEASE do not have campfires or use disposable barbecues in our forests and heathlands. As we have seen, the effect can be devastating. More information on staying safe and enjoying our outside areas whilst avoiding a wildfire starting can be found here – www.dwfire.org.uk/heath-fires-and-countryside-safety

Working smoke alarms save lives by warning of smoke caused by fire and that is important, but they can’t put fires out. A sprinkler system will detect the fire and extinguish or control it and that’s even better https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-yZs00s9pg #ThinkSprinkler

Here’s this mornings update on the fire in wareham! On day 3. The crews have been doing an amazing job in really tough conditions. Again a massive shout out to our teams at fire control who work so hard to not only deal with this incident but all the standby moves to insure fire cover is maintained and deal with incoming 999 calls

❗️Wareham Forest Update❗️We’ve had around 50 firefighters at #WarehamForest overnight but will be scaling back up during the day. The fire is under control but with so many hotspots we expect to be on scene for a couple of days yet. We are urging walkers and cyclists to avoid the area as there are still lots of #fireengines and five miles of hose laid out. We’d like to say #thankyou to everyone for their patience so far, but hotspots can flare up with little to no warning so PLEASE help us by staying away.

On-call firefighters are part-time staff who make themselves available for emergency call-outs depending on their other commitments. They are usually contracted for between 48 and 120 hours per week, but this can vary. Between them, each fire station team will provide cover for weekdays, evenings, nights and weekends.

You can find out more about the role and current vacancies through these pages, but key requirements for applicants are:


  • You must be at least 18 years old when you join us (you can apply once you are 17½)

  • You must be able to get to the fire station within a specified time (usually four minutes but this varies, so check the vacancy details for your local station)

    Message to Wessex Water - We live in Chicksgrove and have endured road disruption for two months now. From next week our road is going to be closed in both directions for 5 days. Please advise how we are supposed to get into Tisbury and also how any emergency vehicles are going to be able to get to our cottages - mainly thatched- during this time
    Tisbury Fire Brigade in the 1950's along with a trophy they had won and an inter brigade competition. The chap on the left (nearest the drivers' door) is Eddie Gray. He did most of the driving on Fire calls as he was employed as a travelling representative and knew his way round. He once recalled that Tisbury received a fire call for Pentridge -obviously in error. The crew turned in and he was the only one who had ever heard of the place - well outside the stations fire ground. They did no more than hop on the tender and proceed to the fire which turned out to be a chimney. They arrived, did the job, enjoyed tea and cakes and returned home again with nothing more being said. On one of the occasions when Tisbury were ordered onto Southampton during the blitz of 1940,again Eddie was the driver and recalled how, when traversing Pepperbox Hill which is six miles east of Salisbury on the A36 they could clearly see from their elevated position the bombs raining down upon the stricken city ,late at night. They all agreed that they did not want to go any further-it would have been so easy to cause the vehicle to break down at that point-but no, they carried on to serve their country and all came home safely again. On the far right of the photo is Sid Bryant who went onto become Station Officer.
    Thank you for having the scouts this evening, they loved it!! https://www.facebook.com/797477400463492/posts/948245992053298/

    Retirement of Cecil Marshall from Tisbury Fire Brigade in 1950's. Cecil is wearing the suit and stood next to him is Station Officer Ralph Jackson.
    Tisbury Fire Brigade in the 1950's at either a retirement of a crew member or an inspection by members of the local authority. The Fire Station which is now the Elizabeth Hall in Park Road was built in 1939 by Hubert Bell who was also a member of the Brigade at the time. Note the Commer Fire Engine doesn't have any blue lights or sirens. At the time the only warning devices when it was on its way to a call out were the bell and the two amber flashing lights above the windscreen in the centre.
    The Commer Water tender that was issued new to Tisbury Fire Station in early 1953. It originally towed a trailer pump but was later converted when a major pump was fitted to the appliance so the trailer pump was no longer required. It replaced the Dennis Fire appliance at Tisbury which was reallocated to Wilton Fire Station where it remained until being replaced in 1960. The Commer was replaced at Tisbury in 1970 by a Bedford TK Fire appliance. Sadly in 1973 to test the capabilities of the new Breakdown/recovery vehicle purchased by Wiltshire Fire Brigade the Commer was written off after it was purposely rolled over so the recovery vehicle could right it again. The Commer was then cut up for scrap.

This was in the early days of Wiltshire Fire Brigade and the County crest is now displayed on the side of the appliance. Stood on the left next to the drivers door is Eddie Gray. Fourth from the left is Station Officer Ralph Jackson who was in charge of Station C3 Tisbury at the time. On the right is Sid Briant who would later become the Station Officer.
    Tisbury Fire Brigade in 1940. Prior to 1939 Fire protection in Tisbury was provided by crew of public spirited shopkeepers and tradesmen who manned a hand drawn two wheeled cart which carried a small amount of firefighting equipment. They were called out by the loud ringing of a bell near the Victoria Hall. Following an act of parliament requiring local authorities to have more formal arrangements for fire fighting cover in July 1939 the Mere and Tisbury Rural district council established a Fire Station in Tisbury. A temporary Fire Station was established in a building behind the "Three Arch Bridge". This was while a Fire Station was built which is now the Elizabeth Hall. The photo shows the first Tisbury Fire Engine purchased from Dennis brothers in 1939. Its a "new World" Light 4 appliance which carried 40 gallons of water on board to supply the first aid hose reel. The appliance also towed a Dennis 500 gallon per minute trailer pump. Its registration was CAM711, Mere also purchased an identical appliance for their Fire Brigade registration CAM710. It saw service along with the crew from Tisbury during the blitz including one night in Southampton when the Tisbury crew had to shelter under it as he bombs fell around them.
