The fire risk is very high for tomorrow (Thursday, August 23) in the Sterea Ellada (Evia), Attica and East Macedonia and Thrace (Evros, Samothraki) regions according to a forecast map from the Secretariat General for Civil Protection.
These regions are in particular in the risk category 4.
It should be noted that the General Secretariat for Civil Protection has informed the competent authorities as well as the regions and municipalities of the areas concerned that they are highly prepared for civil protection to address possible fires.
The General Secretariat for Civil Protection once again recommends that citizens be particularly cautious and avoid acts of violence in rural areas that can cause fires through negligence, such as throwing lighted cigarettes, burning dry grasses and branches or cleaning remnants, and the use of sparking equipment.
Finally, it is recalled that fire fighting is prohibited during the fire-fighting period.
