Fire, Fire!

The Civil Defence suggests some sustainable behavioural rules to prevent fires:

  • do not light fires near wood, flammable liquids in general, fuels, paper and garbage
  • pay attention to signs showing danger of fires or prohibiting fires
  • if you light a fire in a place where it is allowed, make sure it is out before you go away.

In case of fire:

  • when sighting a fire, always inform the people in charge (carabinieri, police, the Fire Brigade, the State Corps of Forest Rangers, the Consortium of Municipalities of the mountain area ….), specifying any useful detail that will be asked
  • learn how to use fire extinguishers.

Near a fire:

  • move away; don’t forget smoke is dangerous for your airways
  • cover your nose and mouth with a damp handkerchief
  • if in a closed place, keep calm, lie down while covering your mouth.
