Fire Prevention Campaign

The new ‘A Secure Forest Depends on Us All’ forest fire campaign was launched in Funchal yesterday by the Regional Secretary for the Environment and Natural Resources, Susana Prada. This years fire prevention initiative will comprise of travelling exhibitions, eco-tours and information on how to prevent forest fires.

The campaign, which will last until the end of October will cover a wide range of media sources including local press, radio and television stations, stickers, leaflets and advertising on the local buses.

During a press conference, Susana Prada reminded everyone present that most forest fires start through negligence or ignorance, and as such, it was essential to create a campaign that will cover the whole island to ensure that everyone acts responsibly through the summer season.
