Operation Unite is working to reduce arson and anti-social behaviour in and around Daventry town centre. It is run as a partnership that includes Daventry District Council, Fire & Rescue, Northamptonshire Police, Daventry Town Council and Neighbourhood Watch.
The aims are to:
- Reduce anti-social behaviour
- Reduce fire setting
- Create a safer environment
- Reduce waste issues and fly-tipping
- Educate local business about fire safety
- Offer free fire protection advice.
Events that the partners have organised include a town centre survey to gain feedback on issues affecting the area, a day of action on the Southbrook estate to share fire prevention and community safety advice with residents and two Emergency Services Fun Days at Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village.
As well as supporting community projects like Operation Unite, the Fire and Rescue Arson Task Force also works with young people who are playing with fire. If you have concerns about a child or young person playing with fire please contact the team on 01604 797 160 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone with information about any incidents of deliberate fire setting is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
It is vital that if you see waste illegally dumped or being deposited, especially if it is a fire hazard, to report it to the council.
