Forest fire simulation in La Palma
Last week, the Canary Islands Government department for Territorial Policy, Sustainability and Security led by Nieves Lady Barreto, held a forest fire simulation at El Paso in La Palma in order be optimally prepared for a possible emergency. These annual simulations have already been carried out on all other densely forested islands. All emergency forces who are involved in this type of emergency took part including fire brigades, police forces, ambulance services, the mountain rescue service and the military. Due to adverse weather conditions, the helicopter squadron could not participate in this particular simulation mission. This involuntarily led to an exceptional situation, which could also happen in reality and requires a quick strategy rethink. In the mountain hamlets of Barriales and Los Pedregales there was a simulated evacuation. After the exercise all participants discussed where there could be improvements in their coordination. The results were very positive.
