In President López Obrador’s daily morning news conference, David León Romero added that the most relevant wildfires are currently located in Durango, Jalisco, Nayarit, and Zacatecas.
“Led by the CONAFOR, and with the participation of all the members of the National Civil Protection System, we are undertaking coordination, prevention, and fire detection tasks, in addition to the arrival to the fire site and the fighting tasks.
“Rural brigades, municipal Civil Protection units, and, of course, a vast network of volunteers as well as the state fire committees, and CONAFOR’S missions are involved in the tasks, in addition to the state and federal Civil Protection coordinations and the fire management directions. ”

I mentioned that the Security Cabinet analyzes the country’s meteorological conditions every day at the National Palace, during Lopez Obrador’s nes conference.
