«Timely preparation for the fire season will allow us to create the prerequisites for prompt response to the occurrence of fires in this territory. After all, green planting of the Exclusion zone is a barrier to the removal of radionuclides beyond its boundaries, and we must take care of the green fence of the Exclusion zone»,- said Acting Head of the SAUEZM Kateryna Pavlova.
Director of the SSE «Pivnichna Pushcha» Roman Kizyun informed about the implementation of work on preparation for the fire season.
«This winter turned out to be very dry and the primary task is to carry out works that will help minimize and localize fires in the Exclusion zone. In particular, clearing roads will allow you to quickly reach the place of ignition, and fire breaks and mineralized strips will become barriers to the spread of fire»,- said the director of the SSE «Pivnichna Pushcha».
