    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Although wildfires have virtually dissipated with the arrival of the rainy season, this year the situation looks different thanks to the phenomenon “El Niño” and Guanacaste could be one of the areas hardest hit by the shortage of rain.

    Against this background the Fire Department will remain vigilant and not excluded that these emergencies arise in that province. El Nacional (IMN) Meteorological Institute estimated that in the second half of the year the likelihood that the effects of El Niño will increase.

    “Topography, humidity and wind are the three variables for a fire. In Guanacaste, low humidity and wind make it susceptible, specifically in that area,” said Chaves.

    As of June 6, about 6,306 acres of park land have been consumed by fire.

    Over 25% of the fires that are generated in the country come from San Jose, but the province of Guanacaste is 27%. Otherwise, Puntarenas and Cartago have rates of 21% and 7%, respectively.

    “With the normal decline of these fires thanks to the rainy season, it allows us to prepare, and thus achieve more tools with which to combat forest fires that devastate forests and protected areas for the dry season, mainly,” said the Fire Department in a bulletin regarding this issue.

    This weekend several volunteer firefighters of San José and Alajuela participated in training regarding this issue. In turn, another event is scheduled in preparation for next August.
