Prevention advice

Fire hazard signIt is now known that the majority of recognized causes of forest fires are of human origin. This shows that the extension of urban areas in the direction of forests, the increase in leisure activities in forest environments and more generally the increase in tourist activity in the Landes de Gascogne forest are factors that heighten the risk of forest fires.

This is why it is necessary to repeat safety messages and emphasize appropriate behaviour in forest areas that can help limit this permanent risk.

Because prevention concerns us all, help us protect the forest!
