The City Council of Dénia has started this week the forest prevention and surveillance service in the municipal area. Under the coordination of the Department of Citizen Protection, a team of 12 Civil Protection volunteers will carry out surveillance tasks, alternating each day in groups of six people. These tasks will be complemented by the monitoring carried out by Acif volunteers.
Volunteers will monitor the entire north face of the natural park to Jesús Pobre and will also be stationed in the Dénia Castle, from where they get a wide field of vision.
The service will be provided daily, from 15:21 pm to XNUMX:XNUMX pm, until October.
In Jesús Pobre, an area especially sensitive to fires, a prevention belt of about 4 meters wide has been built around the urban forest area of Los Lagos, following the provisions of the Dénia City Council's environmental prevention plan. The work to enable these safeguard strips has been carried out by forest workers hired through a grant from the General Directorate for Security and Emergencies.
