    The water intake points are located within the borders of the urban environment.

    Special use spaces with fire fighting system.

    The access to the mountain happens from specific points that can be monitored.

    A street network for the access of the mountainous areas in case of a forest fire.

    The existing fire lookout stations cover almost 40% of the area of interest.

    Especially the northwestern part (limits with municipality of Cholargos) is not visible.

    The non visible areas are pointed out.

    Composed of grassing of medium and high flammability (pines and combination of pines with

    shrubs).

  • Risk Of A Forest Fire Occuring / Street Network/

    Special Uses/ Water Intake Points Map

    Forest Fire Plan Of Action Municipality Of Agia Paraskevi

    The high risk areas:

    Are usually found near the city.

    Are found within the limits of special uses areas (Democritus, American College), so they

    are protected.

    Are covered by the current street network.

    Slide 15/17

  • Risk Of A Forest Fire Occuring / Visibility From The Fire Lookout Stations Map

    Forest Fire Plan Of Action Municipality Of Agia Paraskevi

    The non-visible areas are of high and very

    high risk.

    Slide 16/17

  • Conclusion

    Forest Fire Plan Of Action Municipality Of Agia Paraskevi

    ) The largest part of the area of interest is visible from the existing fire lookout stations and

    is situated in protected zones (Democritus,

    military camp).

    Only specific areas are not visible.

    The construction of another fire lookout station

    in the northwestern side would provide almost

    full visibility.

    ) The construction of a weather station or the use of an existing one (inside Democritus) would

    help fulfill the plan of action. In the risk of a forest fire occurring map we would have the weather factor being counted as well.

    ) A cooperation is required with the neighbouring municipalities around Imittos, so

    as to create a complete GIS.
