Civil Protection: Very high risk of fire on Monday

The risk of fire will be very high (category 4) on Monday in four Greek regions, according to the Wildfire Hazard map released by the General Secretariat for Civil Protection on Sunday.

Particularly the regions of Attica, Sterea Ellada (particularly Evia island and Viotia region), the Peloponnese (especially the regions of Argolida and Corinth) and the northern Aegean region (especially the island of Chios) are in category 4.
The General secretariat for Civil Protection has informed the responsible state authorities, as well as the regions and municipalities facing high risk of fire to be on high alert.

The general secretariat recommends that the public show extreme caution and avoid actions outdoors that may cause a fire through negligence, such as the burning of dry grass or garbage, throwing lit cigarettes or use of machines that produce sparks, as well as the use of barbeques.
