TRNC authorities call on the public not to create fire hazards

The TRNC Forestry Department issued a statement reminding the public that it is illegal to light fires between 1 May and 31 October for any reason.

The statement emphasized that barbecues were prohibited in picnic areas. 

“Especially on the routes of the main roads in forested and wooded areas, our citizens who are driving with their vehicles should not take any action that may cause a fire (especially cigarette butts should not be thrown from the vehicles)”, the statement said.

The public are also asked to call either the freephone Forest Fire number or the Fire Brigade without delay if they should see even a small amount of smoke outdoors.

Forest Fire Alert ALO 177. Fire Brigade ALO 199.
