FIRELIFE project

Jan 11, 2016

Topic related LIFE project is running in Hungary.


HUNGARY: The incidence of forest fires has greatly increased in the last few decades in Hungary.
Not only their frequency but also their intensity and the speed with which fires spread has increased.

This is due to climate extremes, less precipitation, the increase of mean annual temperature and a series of winters without snowfall.

- 99% of the Hungarian forest fires are caused by human activity.
- Forest fires spread to almost 50 hectares per year.

Consequently, the project is aiming more effective, proactive and continuous forest fire prevention activities in Hungary. The first axis focus on the elaboration and provision of targeted information and messages on the basis of an up-to-date communication framework-plan. Some target groups will be contacted personally.
In order to extend the range of available communication channels and better reach the specified target groups, in the second axis training courses for teachers, social workers and farm-stead practionairs are planned.
Training will also be provided for forest fire prevention experts – foresters, conservationists, fire fighters – through practical indoor and outdoor studies. The courses promote building relationships and better inter-agency cooperation on forest fire prevention.
