In the statement made by AFAD, it was emphasized that people who are not competent in firefighting were affected by the fire in the areas they entered, albeit with good intentions of help, and the number of applications to hospitals increased.
In order not to cause similar situations, it was stated that the organizations under the coordination of AFAD, especially the organizations that were accredited before, and the people involved in the fire extinguishing activities by the General Directorate of Forestry (OGM) can participate in the firefighting areas.
It was underlined that the officers would participate in the work under the management of OGM.
