Last year over half the fires was caused by the uncontrolled burning of land - either burning of debris or the extensive burning of land. To better control these activities, a new online system of the INCF (Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e das Florestas) has been established, replacing the former phone contact to the local fire brigade (Bombeiros):

  1. Register online through the ICNF website: https://fogos.icnf.pt/InfoQueimasQueimadas/
  2. Each time you intend to burn debris, make an application online
  3. Wait for the confirmation of the INCF by email or SMS to your mobile
  4. Observe the safety requirements during and after burning
For further information have a look at the PDF manual of the INCF website.


Alternatively, you can contact the INCF by phone 808 200 520 and press 2 for land cleaning and 3 for burning or other issues.
