ALMERIA Province is no longer on maximum alert for forest fires. The danger period came to an end on October 15 and Plan Infoca, the region’s firefighting and fire-prevention service, is turning to the latter with a budget of €611,857.
Special attention is being paid to Sierra de Gador, Sierra de Los Filabres and Sierra de Maria where firebreaks and the perimeters of wooded areas are being cleared of weeds and vegetation.
Water deposits placed at strategic points will be examined and repaired where necessary. This ensures that they can fill to maximum capacity during the winter months and are ready for extinction purposes for next summer, explained the regional government’s Environment delegate Antonio Martinez.
