Municipal instructions to landowners for deforestation and removal of dry grass to prevent fire hazard……..
According the Fire Brigade no. 4/2012 “Determination of precautionary measures for fire protection of land and other uncovered areas, located within cities, towns and settlements ”, and of the article 94 of Law. 3852/2010, the owners of prefectures and usufructuaries of land and other uncovered areas, located within cities, towns and settlements and in the distance until 100 meters from their limits, they are obliged to deforest them from the dry grass and to remove them, the removal of any other abandoned combustible or explosive materials or objects inside them, to prevent the risk of fire or its rapid expansion, as well as taking any other case-by-case measure aimed at avoiding causes and reducing the risk of fire.
In the areas mentioned in par. 1 of the PD. 4/2012, it is forbidden to light a fire, the rejection of lighted cigarettes, matches and other materials from May 1st to October 31st of each year.
For this reason the Municipality Syros – Ermoupolis invites these owners to comply with the above provision, since this year's period is predicted to be quite dangerous, due to the vegetation that has developed after the previous rains.
