The press service of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of Komi reported that the forest fire center has improved more than 250 recreation areas for citizens in the forests of the republic this year.
Recreation areas are separated by a fire-resistant mineralized strip. The sites have gazebos, tables with benches and a place for making a fire. Throughout the fire season, the territory of recreation areas will be cleared of clutter, debris, dangerous dead trees and dry fire-hazardous vegetation.
The report notes that such sites are being built in the most frequently visited places, picturesque viewpoints on the banks of rivers and lakes, as well as along forest roads and busy highways. This makes it possible to minimize the occurrence of spontaneous recreation areas and reduce the risk of forest fires.
