These indicators were released during the last meeting of the Municipal Forest Defense Commission, held on June 4, and at which the Municipal Operational Plan for the coming forest fires season was approved.

The cleanings carried out are foreseen in the Municipal Plan for the Defense of the Forest Against Fires and aim to reduce the amount of forest fuels in the municipality.
