Portugal’s Centre for Studies on Forest Fires has defended greater efforts for the population to be “more prepared” to face wildfires, despite work already carried out by the government.

The report “Analysis of Forest Fires” recently released said that it welcomed the programme “Safe Town, Safe People” launched by the government as well as measures in managing fuel surrounding houses.

However, it said extensive work was needed to make communities “more resilient” and “apt” to defend themselves from the effects of fires.
