Every year during the Qingming Festival, outdoor sacrificial activities increase, with the rise of temperature, further increase the risk of fire.It is understood that most areas of our country have entered the critical period of spring fire prevention.Spring has always been the high incidence of forest grassland fire, it is understood that this year’s rainfall distribution is uneven, some areas less precipitation, the drought is heavier, and the temperature is higher than the usual, coupled with spring wind weather, fire risk level continues to rise.Forest firefighters said that the possible rise in temperature and strong winds during the Qingming Festival will reduce the moisture content of fuel in the forest area, so special attention should be paid to preventing fires.In view of the fire prevention situation of forest grassland, the Ministry of Emergency Management has sent several working groups to guide and supervise key areas, and jointly carry out special actions such as field fire source control and investigation and punishment of illegal fire use behavior.At present, the fuel load in many forest and pastoral areas far exceeds the critical value. In order to prevent fire before “burning”, forest firefighters in many areas increase patrol and fire prevention propaganda efforts to remind everyone to “do not smoke and do not use fire” in forest and pastoral areas.At present, under the deployment of the Ministry of Emergency Management, more than 18,000 forest fire fighters are on standby at all times, and more than 6,000 are stationed in front of 123 key fire risk areas in China. Aircraft from the aviation forest protection headquarters in the South and North are stationed in 20 provinces to ensure early detection, reporting and disposal of fires.Statement: This article is reproduced for the purpose of passing on more information.If the source is wrong or violated your legitimate rights and interests, please contact the author with proof of ownership, we will promptly correct, delete, thank you.Email address:
