Jijel: Prevention campaign against forest fires

To carry out forest fire prevention in the wilaya of Jijel, it was decided to launch the traditional campaign at the beginning of May, following recommendations from the Ministry of the Interior.

The wilaya thus benefited from the new strategy through the acquisition of drones which will be used in forest surveillance operations, but also in the control and monitoring of interventions against fires.

According to the services of the wilaya of Jijel, the first official of the executive, Ahmed Meguellati, insisted during the launch of this campaign on strengthening the Forest Conservation workforce with seasonal agents and making interventions more effective. , especially since all the necessary equipment has been mobilized.

The wali also emphasized the work of anticipation and awareness to be carried out towards populations living in forest areas, but also at the level of educational establishments and the associative movement, and especially in villages and localities to raise the degree of mobilization.

The wilaya of jijel, which is among the most wooded regions nationally, continues to experience fires every year. Memories of the disasters recorded last year, where several fires broke out on the same day, are still vivid in the minds of the population.

The most important ones were triggered during the day of July 25 to 26, 2023 and affected five municipalities simultaneously (Jijel, Taher, Texenna, Chahna and Ziama Mansouriah). Even if there were no human casualties, the damage recorded was very significant and its consequences are still visible.
