Preparation for the fire-hazardous period in the national park "Land of the Leopard" is completed

The press service of the national park "Land of the Leopard" announced the completion of preparations for the fire-hazardous period. New mineralized bands have been created and existing ones have been updated in the habitats of Far Eastern leopards and Amur tigers. The total length of the defense lines is more than 220 kilometers.

Experts expect that due to the lack of precipitation, a full-scale fire danger period will begin in the last days of February. In this regard, preparations for the forest fire season have been accelerated.

"This year, dozens of kilometers of fire breaks have been restored and equipped. Mineralized strips are an important element of the forest fire protection system. Areas cleared of vegetation with a width of about 10 meters do not allow the fire to spread. Such a "protective belt" serves as a reference line to stop the flame, and is also used for the rapid transfer of forces and means during fire extinguishing," the message says.

In preparation for the fire-hazardous period, work on clearing forest roads was also completed. In addition, the serviceability of fire equipment and equipment was checked at the national park, and the staff was instructed on actions in case of forest fires. Special anti-fire exercises will take place before the end of the month.
