Anti-fire brigade could cost us 6m

TENERIFE'S Fire Prevention and Extinction campaign was launched this week to counteract the forest-fire threat we face every year.

It will run until mid-October and will be able to deploy at least 300 people in the event of danger.

There is an available budget of around 1.5 million euros, and the Cabildo has the use of a Tenerife-based helicopter, which will cost more than half that sum.



Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
