Extreme Heat Conditions -- Fire Hazard

These days there are extreme heat conditions prevailing in and around Jalandhar . There are many forest fires raging in jungles near Talwara and else where. Very valuable forest resources are being destroyed . Un harvested ripe wheat is also very vulnerable to fire .There is so much combustible material like dry grass and leaves around which can start a major fire. Water ,the main medium of fire fightng , is extreme shortage .

We should keep some buckets or in some similar containers water handy so that it may be of use at any emergency.
