High risk of fire in the Aegean on Tuesday

There is a very high (category four) fire risk for Tuesday 11 September for the regions of the north and south Aegean (the islands of Kos, Rhodes, Kalymnos, Samos and Ikaria), said the civil protection service on Monday.

The General Secretariat for Civil Protection has informed all state services, municipal and regional authorities of the high fire risk in order to be on heightened alert. At the same time, authorities are instructing people to avoid behaviour that could result in any wildfires, such as carelessly discarding lit cigarettes and the burning off of branches or dry grass.

The department also called on people to call the Fire Brigade on 199 for to report fires and wildfires, and referred them to its web page (https://www.civilprotection.gr/en) for further information.
