The Ministry of the Environment through its Directorate of Forests and Renewable Energies and its Departmental Directorate of South-East organizes at the National Natural Park of the Pine Forest (Unit 1), a week of training on the prevention and control of fires foresters.
This training, which mobilizes nearly fifty participants, specifically targets agents of the Environmental Surveillance Corps of the Park and the leaders of the neighboring areas of the forest.

This training, which will end on December 4th, 2022, is led by three trainers from the Ministry: Agronomist Ulrick BAIN, Pierre Guito JEAN and Kerns Paul PACIFIQUE. This training is part of the Ministry's program to sustainably manage forests and protected areas that are often victims of fires.
