Talks between agencies involved in the massive response to wildfires in Moray will be held tomorrow.
Groups involved in dealing with the incidents at Knockando and Dunphail will meet in Elgin for a debrief to learn lessons from one another.
Estate workers, game keepers and other volunteers rushed to the scene to aid emergency crews and help tackle the blazes, which spanned up to 20 square miles and lasted several days.
Moray MP Douglas Ross said: “It’s important that we learn from these events to better equip everyone should there be wildfires in the future.
“I’ve been in contact with the chief fire officer and Scottish Natural Heritage as concerns were shared with me about the time it took for helicopters to arrive and assist with the efforts.
“While these were requested by an estate rather than the fire service, there does seem to have been some communication issues which delayed their deployment from the responses I’ve received to my inquiries.”
Meanwhile, calls have also been made to ensure action is taken to stop similar incidents from causing more harm to the landscape in the future.
Highlands and Islands MSP Jamie Halcro Johnston said: “What is clear is that, as temperatures rise, we need to make our landscape more resilient to prevent wildfires taking hold and spreading as far as these recent ones have done.
“To do that, we need to understand better the impact of various land management practices and ensure that they don’t increase the likelihood or the impact of wildfires.”
