FOREST FIRE FIGHTERS
We protect the forest!
Who We Are
KNOW THE FIRE FIGHTERS
The fire brigade is an independent group of volunteers to protect Alter do Chão Forest, its people and the Strong Axe Region.
Since 2018 we fight the Forest Fires with courage e dauntless. We were formed by the Militar Fire Department, Civil Defense and Municipal Environment Secretariat (SEMMA).
Thanks to the support of so many people like yourself, we made, between August 26th and 30th, a course that formed 30 more Fire Fighters (know more in Instagram @brigadadealter). We are grateful and appreciate each and everyone for your concern, interest, sharing and donations
However, it is not enough to have Fire Fighters without proper equipment to be completely successful. Even because we are aware that this year the fire indexes are the biggest forecasting. We need IPE’s, heavy and light equipments, communication equipments and a car for the Fire Fighters to increase the speed to reach the fire.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! The Amazon dry season lasts for five months and it has just started.
