Watch out for fire

Drought increases the risk of wildfires.

When the municipalities introduce bans on the use of open fire, burning and the like, this also applies to the areas managed by the Nature Agency, including all campfire and barbeque sites.

Please check local announcements at the Danish Emergency Management Agency’s website (in Danish): http://brs.dk/forebyggelse/brand/afbraendingsforbud/Pages/afbraendingsforbud.aspx

Moreover, please notice:

  • Smoking is not permitted during the period 1 March to 31 October in heathered areas, in overgrown sand dunes, on grassy forest floors, in coniferous plantations, nor in young growths of deciduous and coniferous trees. Never throw away cigarette butts and the like in nature.
  • If you discover a fire, please do not hesitate to dial 112.
