  Why are there frequent fires in Sichuan? Why is it difficult to save?

  At 19:30 on March 28, a forest fire broke out at the junction of Hoitouwan Village and Xiangjiao Village, Xiangjiao Town, Qiaowa Town, Muli County, Liangshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province. On March 30, a forest fire broke out in Jingjiu Township, Xichang City, Liangshan Prefecture, Sichuan. After more than 20 days, a fire broke out again on April 20 in Zhangmuqing Town, Xichang City, Liangshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province.

  The reporter learned from the National Emergency Management Department that in March, 42 forest and grassland fires occurred in Sichuan Province, an increase of 26 from the same period last year, an increase of 163%.

  The research results of the Chengdu Plateau Meteorological Institute and the Sichuan Agricultural Meteorological Center show that February to April is the high season for forest fires in Sichuan. The high incidence areas are mainly located in southern Ganzi, Liangshan and Panzhihua in the western Sichuan Plateau. Analysis of the temperature and precipitation in Sichuan shows that the above-mentioned areas from February to April are the areas with the highest temperature and the least precipitation in Sichuan Province.

  Lei Zhiyan, a second-level inspector of the Sichuan Provincial Emergency Management Office, said that Sichuan has a vast territory, steep mountains, gullies, and lush forests. The meteorology, climate, and geological features are complex and diverse. There are many types of natural disasters, high frequency of occurrence, and a wide distribution area The heavy losses are the key prevention and control areas and key provinces for natural disasters such as floods, droughts, forest fires, and earthquakes. "These natural disasters are very likely to cause secondary production safety accidents."

  On April 9, in response to the problem of frequent fires in Southwest China's forest areas and the difficulty of fighting them, Peng Xiaoguo, executive deputy director of the Office of the National Forest and Grassland Fire Fighting Command and director of the fire prevention and management department of the Emergency Management Department, said from a professional perspective The occurrence and spread of forest fires are mainly influenced by combustible materials, meteorological conditions, topography and other major factors. From the perspective of the recent suppression of forest fires in Sichuan and Yunnan, the difficulties are mainly reflected in the complex weather and steep terrain. The effect of pressure is usually difficult to function with water extinguishing equipment; at the same time, it is easy to reignite.

  "In the face of these security risks, we always remain cautious and follow Ye Zhiqiu's keenness. We take the supervision of enterprises to strictly implement the requirements of both the root cause and the cure of security risks as an important part of strong supervision. Solve the problem before the germination and before the disaster, and make every effort to maintain the safety of the people's lives and property. "Lei Zhiyan said.
