Over the past couple of weeks Apuí’s local fire brigade has been working hard on putting out fires surrounding the Amazonas state municipality. They are using several kinds of equipment such as fire beaters and leaf blowers. At the moment, they are temporally supported by Brazil’s army.
At the same time, our local partner IDESAM started training sessions on fire awareness in local school Maria Curtarelli Lira. A few days ago, over a hundred students attended a lecture by IDESAM and were taught on matters such as waste management (some families burn their trash), fire breaks and what can cause fires.
