Not that many years ago every access into forestry commission land had a stand holding fire beaters. Basically a rubber flap on the end of a pole. With the insidious H&S regulations and most people having a total lack of situational awareness, it now seems prudent to leave these situations to the professionals. A sudden wind gust can change a smoldering heath in to a fast moving wall of flame.
