Joint appeal of the Ministries of Emergency Situations, Ecology and Natural Resources, and Agriculture

Unfortunately, forest fires that occur every year in different parts of the world, result in the destruction of thousands of hectares of forest, burning greenery to ashes.

In order to prevent fires in the country, the Ministries of Emergency Situations, Ecology and Natural Resources, Agriculture appeal to farmers, representatives of municipal and executive bodies, agricultural entrepreneurs and the general public to strictly follow fire safety rules in arable lands and natural areas. , do not set fire to the fields after the harvest, do not throw unextinguished cigarette butts around. Because the slightest carelessness can cause irresistible fires, resulting in the destruction of forest areas, flora and fauna.

The analysis shows that the majority of forest fires are caused by citizens who do not follow fire safety rules, farmers who set fire to the fields after the harvest, and people who rest in nature.

Note that the onset of hot summer days and the grain harvest season, as well as the fact that people turn to nature, increases the likelihood of fires. We urge everyone to follow the rules of fire safety to prevent fires.
