Formentera urges caution during high fire risk season

With the onset of the high fire risk season at the start of May, Consell de Formentera firefighters have begun to carry out daily surveillance patrols in forested areas. Josep Marí, interior councillor, has asked islanders and visitors to exercise "the utmost caution and avoid recklessness that, paired with high temperatures, can cause forest fires".

Marí pointed out that there is a ban on fires within 50 metres of forested land from 1 May to 15 October. Fires lit in a 50-to-500-metre radius of forest land require an administrative permit from the Balearic ministry of environment.

The Consell de Formentera fire brigade comprises 15 full-time professional firefighters and one itinerant team member. Please call 112 if you have a fire-related emergency.
