Reinforcement in Fire Fighting

Brazil Iron signed a partnership with the city of Abaíra and provided ten employees to join the Forest Fire Fighting Brigade in the region. Last week, the volunteers and the municipal guard participated in a course by the Bahia Military Fire Brigade.

The area, especially in this dry season, suffers a lot and needs more trained people to act when these events happen. As informed in the lectures, the occurrences are mostly from unauthorized fires.

In addition to making its professionals available, Brazil Iron donated safety equipment that will be used in the courses and in the very activity of fighting forest fires.
