Transcript of Preventing forest fires.

Thesis We can work together to
prevent forest fires. Forest fires occur naturally or when people are not careful. People throw cigarettes on the ground and without wanting that starts a fire. The Government Local Population Synergy is used in stopping forest fires by joint efforts of
the government, regional cooperation, and the local population. Regional Cooperation One region may help another by sending airplanes that carry water and chemicals that can stop the fire. Provides firefighters brigades; Supports local initiatives; Provides other help. Firefighter volunteers; Supports firefighters. Sometimes synergy is being used effectively, sometimes not. Effective synergy Not effective synergy Sometimes people start fires on purpose. No changes need to be made, if synergy is being used. When there are good results, synergy is being used effectively. When there are bad or no results, synergy is not being used effectively. Not extinguished camp fires or barbecues can spread as forest fires. Natural fires usually start when lightning strikes. Sometimes they start by combustion of dry fuels. Bibliography: Clark, James Samuel.
