That this House expresses gratitude for all the firefighters who are battling the forest fire in Braichmelyn, near Bethesda, Gwynedd and the mountain fire at Mynydd Cilgwyn in Carmel; praises firefighters from across Arfon for their endless hard work in the face of mounting pressure on the service; expresses thanks to North Wales Police and Gwynedd Council for assisting in the evacuation of residents from properties in Carmel and Bethesda; notes the importance of retaining local fire stations in rural communities in order to maintain emergency service cover across the parliamentary constituency; further notes that local knowledge and expertise should be safeguarded in order to protect the public; and expresses concern that the potential loss of local firefighters with detailed knowledge of their patch could lead to a dangerous vacuum, amplifying the danger to life and property.
