The Amazonas State Government has allocated R$1.1 million to pay for the work of 153 firefighters in nine municipalities, to reinforce the fight against fires in the interior of Amazonas. The project is a cooperation between the State Secretariat for the Environment and the Sustainable Amazon Foundation (FAS), with financial support from Rewild for the purchase of materials and equipment. The selected firefighters will work in municipalities in the south of the state, an area with the highest number of hotspots.
