PreventionAt homeIn the forestWhen camping

What does “proximity to the forest” mean?

It is difficult to establish a specific distance because the risk of fire spreading is related to a number of factors, including weather conditions, the time of day, and the type of fuel.

In addition, these factors are in turn influenced by the seasons. In spring, for example, extra vigilance is needed. Surface fuel, composed of dry grasses, twigs, and moss, is easily ignited and it can make the fire spread to the surrounding forest areas.
