How can I avoid forest fires ?

Every year there are 4,000 forest fires in France, meaning more than 24,000 hectares of forests go up in flames. 😭


So what’s the best advice to avoid a fire outbreak? ?

What to do :

  • Keep your yard clear
  • Be informed of municipal fire safety ordinances as well as the associated risks
  • Ensure all doors and windows close properly and keep the roof clear of potential fire hazards 🏠
  • Keep a fire safe zone around your home: distance sheds and firewood storage
  • Place gas canisters in a protected area 💨
  • Above all… prepare firefighting capabilities (nearby water source, garden hose, etc.) and evacuation routes ahead of time
