Great risk of wildfires
Forecasts show a great risk of forest fire throughout Gothland, but also in large areas of Svealand. Grass fire risk applies mainly to northern Gothland, Svealand and along the southern Norrland coast.
Due to the high fire risk, MSB is heightening preparedness for extinguishing grass and forest fires with four helicopters.
MSB urges everyone to be careful and grill in safe and permissible places, preferably where there is access to water.
