The Pau Costa Foundation offers support to a series of certifications generated by the Amazonia Without Fire Program, PASF. A training program that seeks to reduce the incidence of forest fires, through the implementation of alternative practices to the use of fire in rural areas, helping to protect the environment and improve the living conditions of communities.
Under the IV Training Course for Specialist Brigadiers in Comprehensive Fire Management of the PASF, The Pau Costa Foundation offered its support to certify the training with the common objective of improving training, personnel safety and strengthening its international community ties
In this particular course, 84 people participated, including park rangers, technicians and other actors of civil society, from the provinces of Pichincha, Imbabura and Carchi. These participants had the opportunity to strengthen their knowledge in relation to the standardization of action protocols in the management of forest fires and fire management.
It should be noted that the Amazonia Without Fire Program, became known through the #FireHomeSchool. An initiative launched by the Pau Costa Foundation during the weeks of confinement, and in which people from all corners of the planet were invited to speak on any topic related to forest fires.
