How we helpDonate

Welcome to Alerta de incêndio florestal / Forest Fire Alert!

After the fires of 2016 there was a need for an association which could help aid the distribution of provisions and finances to the necessary Bombeiros stations and locations in the event of a fire. Alerta de incêndio florestal / Forest Fire Alert are now more active than ever in their facebook group promoting events and fire awareness as well as regular distributing updates from the civil protection

 General Information…

Alerta de incêndio florestal / Forest Fire Alert Facebook group, which is where the now official Alerta de incêndio florestal  association started, was created by a gentleman who has now left the Algarve, Debby Burton Chairman of the Association was an admin for the face book group from the early days. Initially it was just local people commenting “I can see smoke here”, “there are a lot of fire engines just gone by in this town and that sort of thing. Debby thought it would be of assistance to use the civil protection website, to confirm fires and the gravity of them and from that point on the Facebook group became a valuable source of information for the local community, daily updates are made with relevant fire information as well as more regular updates in the event of a fire.
