Scheresse et risque d'incendie
2019-04-18
In recent weeks, Saint-Martin firefighters have been called upon to intervene on bush fires. Plant dryness combined with strong wind events is a real danger to fire hazards.
St. Martin is currently subject to an absence of precipitation and drought becoming more and more pregnant. The high temperatures, the dryness of the soils and the vegetation, form elements favorable to the starts of fire.
The population is invited to observe simple precautions. Cigarette butts should not be thrown away, especially along roadsides and hedgerows or undergrowth. Precautions for use are necessary for barbecues. In particular, they must be carried out on a protected area, away from the vegetation and with a means of extinction nearby. Burns are banned in gardens and fields during drought.
The community of Saint-Martin invites the population to the utmost vigilance.
