Bhubaneswar: Govt constitutes high-level task force to manage forest fires

The Odisha government has constituted a high-level task force to manage forest fires with more focus. The task force headed by a former Principal Chief Conservator of Forest will review the ongoing fire incidents, causes and containment and suggest measures to augment fire management protocols and community participation among others.

The constitution of the task force is back grounded against Odisha’s annual face-off with the devastating menace of forest fire between mid-February to mid-June.  The immediate trigger, however, was the recent concerns expressed by the media and several persons including the two Union Ministers from Odisha,

Dharmendra Pradhan and Pratap Chandra Sarangi over the forest fire that continues to leap across the Similipal Tiger Reserve in the Mayurbhanj district of the state, which also is one of the few important biospheres of the country .

Meanwhile, the state forest department has engaged about twelve hundred persons along with around 300 fire extinguishers and 40 fire fighting vehicles to control the fire, raging in the Similipal Tiger Reserve, which has already witnessed about 1500 points across the reserve catching fire in the last one month alone.
