If necessary, cut off the large fields or divide them into more than one field so that the fire does not move from a field And the nearby crops are eaten and thus reduce the size of the losses, and in the rugged and mountainous areas may require the construction of agricultural roads to ensure the arrival of mechanisms and firefighters to the affected areas and also requires the increase of fire stations in all provinces and provide human cadres and appropriate mechanisms, (Not exceeding 5%) who are exposed to the dangers of every fire they face, in addition to the incentives and rewards paid to them during the period of raising readiness during the harvest, which lasts about a month and a half to two months, and it is useful here to circulate the new experience The firefighters in Lattakia are using fire extinguishers (carried by the firefighters on their backs as they carry spray pumps) to all the mountainous and forest areas in all governorates because of the flexibility, effectiveness and speed in the movement of the fire in those areas that are difficult for firefighters to reach, In the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Agriculture is called upon to resolve solutions that contribute to the elimination of fires and reduce the volume of losses after they occur, especially in the event of high temperatures and the exposure of strategic crops to fires.
