Özet

One of the major problems in many countries is the forest fires. Forest fires are the source of the most of the problems of fire protection organization in every year. Why does Turkey still have too many forest fires? And how do we eliminate forest fires? We are trying to approach this problem under our country conditions, and explain that how we are able to eliminate the forest fires in Izmir Forest Directorate. Forest fires stands out especially in the provinces of forests under the influence of the Mediterranean climate in Turkey. However, the forest directorate that are at risk in terms of both burning areas and fire numbers in these provinces are Mugla, Antalya and Izmir For this reason, this study was carried out in Izmir Regional Directorate of Forestry between the years 2006-2015, one of the regional directorates that are always at risk.
