The PSOE claims more investment in sanitation, cleaning and clearing of forests as urgent measures of prevention to prevent fires (09/08/2017)

Andrea Periago has stated that the fires "also go out during the winter" by means of prevention policies that go through the hiring of more personnel for the cleaning and maintenance of forests, and to overcome the "worrying deficit" of budget for the provision of more Human and material resources

The councilor of the PSOE in the city of Lorca, Andrea Periago, has claimed today the investment of more public resources for the cleaning and clearing of forests, to avoid fires in the municipality of Lorca as the one that in 2015 affected the Sierra del Almirez, as well as not to repeat in our municipality tragic episodes such as those experienced during this summer in several municipalities in the Region of Murcia.

The mayor stressed the importance of implementing prevention policies throughout the year, which she described as "essential".

Periago has stated that the fires "also go out during the winter", through a good prevention that, in his opinion, involves hiring more personnel to clean and maintain forests, and to overcome the "serious and worrying Budget deficits "that our municipality and our Region have, because it denounces that it is" clamorous "the lack of material and human resources for the conservation and cleanliness of our mountains.

Periago urges the different administrations to "act" before the lack of application of these measures will again take its toll on our mountains.

The mayor has warned that "there are many authorized voices who, in tune, denounce the lack of budget for prevention" and ensure that "our mountains have become real bombs."

The mayor has set the example of the "serious and worrying" state that stretches between Zarzadilla de Totana and the municipality of Aledo (MU-503), bordering Sierra Espuña, or others near the Sierra de Pedro Ponce.

He says that although the slowness of our forests is not only the last year, the snowstorm last winter left these areas of forest with more pine and branches in the ground "today dry, and turned into fuel so that any forest fire spreads With more intensity and violence. "

The mayor insists that the lack of foresight is a "serious error" that ends up impacting on the environment, the safety of people and public coffers, since, he says, "in the end the economic outlay is much greater in The extinction that in the prevention ".

In this sense, from the Socialist Municipal Group, they demand that local and regional authorities, in order to prepare annual budgets, "simulate the expense of a large fire" so that the "alleged cost" of that fire " Be included in the budgets with the aim of targeting policies and actions in prevention. "
