'PROTECTION OF FORESTS AGAINST FIRE'
Within the framework of SVAROG 2017 fire prevention campaign, the National Protection and Rescue Directorate of the Republic of Croatia has set up a photo exhibition in the premises and the show-window of Alliance française de Split, located in one of the most frequented pedestrian streets of Split. The exhibition displaying the photos taken by Croatian and Montenegrin firefighters features forest firefighting interventions. The aim of the exhibition, organized in the fire prevention month of May, at the start of the summer season, is to remind the public of the horrifying consequences to the forests due to our lack of caution and care.
The exhibition opening taking place 19 May was attended by the firefighting and protection and rescue actors, as well as the media. The exhibition will last for ten days.
The SVAROG leaflets with fire prevention tips and the project brochures were distributed in the street to the passers-by and also presented to the Tourist Information Office of Split.
