18 Local Police, Fire and Civil Protection officers will monitor the 43 forest parks and municipal estates daily to avoid fires (13/06/2018)

The Councilor for Traffic and Public Safety, Lola Sanchez, today presented the municipal plan INFOMUR Plan, emergency Civil Protection plan for forest fires in the Region of Murcia.

In this plan, which establishes a period of high fire danger from June 1 to September 30, 4 volunteers will intervene daily providing the service of prevention and extinction of forest fires.

Thus, the City of Murcia collaborates with Plan Infomur in the work of intervention with SEIS, and in the work of land mobile monitoring with the Volunteers of Civil Protection of the City of Murcia.

The affected fuel surface is 30,368 hectares of forest in the municipality of Murcia of the Carrascoy and El Valle Regional Park and special protection areas for birds (ZEPA) in El Valle and Sierra de Altaona and Escalona.

Councilor Lola Sanchez explained that "these enclaves have an enormous ecological value -both for its fauna and for its exceptional flora- and landscape, and receive special attention to avoid its deterioration or the effects of a fire".

The Ecological Patrol of the Local Police, composed of a corporal and 8 agents, intensifies this summer its habitual surveillance in the 43 Forest Parks and Municipal Farms susceptible to suffer fires due to the existence of important arboreal masses.

The device also has the participation of patrols of the Decentralization Unit, supporting the previous ones, especially at night.

The service will be carried out by intensive patrolling with special vehicles (off-roading and motorcycles) with which it is possible to move safely through areas of difficult access, often located outside the roads and forest tracks.

In addition, the Fire and Rescue Extinction Service will also be reinforced daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. by 4 more personnel (3 firefighters and 1 driver), until a total of 41 are reached daily, of which two firefighters will remain assigned to the Outlets as a third fireman, another fireman to the Service of Cuba and a driver to the Auxiliary Service.

Regarding Civil Protection, the service will be carried out with two mobile stations, consisting of a couple of volunteers for each of them (four volunteers per day) with a flexible and variable schedule between 12 noon and 20 o'clock.

These two mobile forest monitoring posts will cover two routes:

Route 1: Puerto del Garruchal, Camino de los Puros, Camino del El Relojero, El Sequen, La Balsa and El Valle, Sanctuary of La Fuensanta, Cresta del Gallo, Forest Road, Los Garres.

Route 2: Corvera, La Murta, Astronomical Observatory, Pico del Águila, Corvera, Venta El Garruchal, Cabezo de la Plata.

The functions that will develop are to discover foci or indications of possible fires;

monitor the different zones, locate geographically the foci detected, signal access to the fire area and communicate quickly and effectively the information to CECARM
