Local communities take action to reduce forest fire risks in Belize

21 May 2019, CNS

Some communities in Belize are particularly at risk of forest fires: the frequency of fires is high and the nearest fire station is about 10 miles away. Community members have taken measures to protect themselves from the natural hazard. In addition to attending fire safety workshops, some residents built their homes with fireproof materials.
