It’s That Time Of Year To Start Thinking Of Preventative Measures……

It’s been a very wet and cold winter for Algarve standards and the last thing on people’s minds is the hot and dry summer which gives risk to wildfires. If you have never witnessed a wildfire close up, then you may still not appreciate the devastation and huge danger these cause.

We had a close shave last year with the São Marcos da Serra wildfire starting very close to the quinta. Remember, that the March 15th deadline is approaching where rural land requires clearing around the house (Information Here…).

Just as a reminder of the devastation caused by the wildfires below are the two short films I made after 2 of the fires.

The first one is last year’s fire close to the house

The second one shows just how big an area was destroyed in the huge Monchique fires of 2018

As you may know, I am a Committee member of the Assoçiação para Alerta de Incêndio Florestal (Forest Fire Alert Association) and we are always looking for help, whether that be financially or donating time.

For more information, please take a look at the Alerta Website (it is currently undergoing a new refresh for 2021!).
