June 2016 – Lova, Malagasy forester engineer, the fight against bushfire, a priority in raising awareness and training of local population


We’ve just acquired hydrant materials such as a motor pump and a fire hose put together with two tanks, one of 2’000 litres and the other of 5’000 litres. The main goal is to take action in case of excess bushfires. Despite firebreaks of 8 or 10 meters width, a burning bush is hardly controllable. Extremely violent winds in this season rapidly fan the least spark into a huge fire which lead to fire risks in new plantations and even worse entire villages are caught in flames. Therefore, Lova, training responsible, wanders villages and local schools to apprise population of the worse.
