The aim to increase the counsciousness of the society in the field of forest fire prevention makes it obligatory to reach the greatest number of Polish citizens and show them the great value of Polish forests. We intend to create attitudes acting on behalf of the decrease of the number of fires (caused by people intentionally, as a result of imprudence or burning out of meadows, stubble fields or wastelands).
Due to these facts, the State Forests prepared two editions of an educational-informative campaign of unprecedented scale: "Forest fire and nature – raising consciousness in the field of fire prevention among inhabitants of rural areas" and "Forest fire and nature II – 2nd stage of the informative campaign on forest fire risk".
The campaign's scope covers 10 voivodships:
1st stage of the campaign: Masovian, Podlaskie, Warmian-Masurian and Kuyavian-Pomeranian on the territory of regional directorates of Białystok, Olsztyn, Toruń, Warsaw and parts of Radom
2nd stage will reach the Silesian, Świętokrzyskie, Lesser Poland, Subcarpathian, Lublin and Łódź voivodships on the territory of regional directorates of Katowice, Kraków, Krosno, Lublin, Łódź and Radom.
The campaign is aimed at inhabitants of rural areas living in close proximity to forests, school children, tourists visiting forest areas as well as urban inhabitants using forests for recreation.
