Forest fires are one of the biggest
natural disasters affecting forested
areas around the world. Its
environmental and economic
impact is devastating and therefore
it is important to understand its
origin, prevention and extinction.
A forest fire is a large fire that spreads through the forests, affecting trees,
animals and other living beings, as well as buildings and people nearby.
Type of forest fires
Depending on the circumstances
that surround us, forest fires can
be natural, accidental or
intentional.
Deforestation
The main cause of forest fires is
deforestation and uncontrolled
human action.
Harmful effects
Forest fires can trigger natural
disasters, cause human losses or, for
example, threaten biodiversity.
Shallow: The top burning of leaves, twigs, and other plant material to the ground.
Crown surface: fire of the highest vegetation, such as the treetops.
Underground: Burns materials below the soil surface, such as roots and mulch.
Crown: Extremely intense and spread rapidly through the treetops.
Hellish: Extreme heat conditions occur and can spawn fire whirlwinds and fire
tornadoes.
Fires caused by humans: Fires caused by human activities, such as the burning of
waste, the negligent use of fire, or even criminal intent, can also vary in intensity
and behavior.
Fires profoundly affect the
environment, causing the loss of
fauna and flora, droughts, and
rises in environmental
temperatures.
ENVIRONMENT ACCESS
CONTROL
It is recommended to control
access by cars and people to
wooded spaces since fires can
easily start.
EARLY
WARNINGS
A good early warning
system can help control
the fire even before it
spreads.
BURNING RESTRICTIONS
Implement regulations and
restrictions regarding burning
of waste, campfires, and other
types of open fires
FOREST FIRE PREVENTION
Forest Fire Fighting
attack tactics
remove the fuel
Use of Tools
RECOVERY AND RESTORATION OF BIODIVERSITY AFTER A
FOREST FIRE
planting new plants
Reforestation is one of
the most effective
solutions for the
recovery of biodiversity
Soil recovery
The soil needs to be
treated with care and
exploration techniques
to prevent erosion and
improve the quality of
the land.
coverage
systems
The use of organic
matter and other
techniques to maintain
humidity and help in
the recovery of plants,
attracting fauna.
