Enhancing Wildfire Management Strategies

In a recent strategic meeting at the presidential palace chaired by President Nikos Christodoulides, new wildfire management strategies were outlined. These include integrating the airborne firefighting unit into the National Guard, reopening the forestry college, installing more sensors for early detection, acquiring ten aerial firefighting vehicles, amending arson laws, clearing wild vegetation by May, extending the high alert season, improving mobile phone alerts, and training volunteers for community engagement. These measures aim to enhance wildfire response and safeguard the nation’s forests and communities as the summer season approaches.
