While the second day of the Manavgat fire is left behind, Antalya Metropolitan Municipality, which has gone to the region since the fire broke out, continues to work in the region with 253 vehicles and 1146 personnel. President Muhittin Insect, on the other hand, manages the coordination efforts at the fire management center, and shares the pain with his fellow countrymen from Manavgat.
Firefighting in Manavgat continues with the intense efforts of Antalya Metropolitan Municipality fire crews. Antalya Metropolitan Municipality teams are working in full coordination with the teams that come to Manavgat for support from other provinces. Saying that all institutions in the region are trying to heal the wounds with a supra-political effort, Antalya Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Muhittin Insect said, “We are showing all our efforts regarding the process. We are working in coordination with our teams from other provinces to put out the fire and heal the wounds," he said.
GENERATOR SUPPLEMENT TO ASAT
Antalya Metropolitan Municipality ASAT General Directorate teams are trying to provide water with generators to the neighborhoods that cannot be given water due to power cuts in the region. The number of generators was increased due to insufficient 10 generators sent to the region on the first day. Efforts are being made to supply water to the neighborhoods with 33 generators. ASAT also assists firefighting teams by providing water support from drinking water production facilities with sprinklers.
BURNING ANIMALS ARE BURIED
Antalya Metropolitan Municipality Mobile Soup Kitchen continues to offer soup to citizens who were damaged by the fire. In addition, the most needed water, ice and ayran distribution are also carried out by the Metropolitan Municipality teams. The animals damaged in the fire are not forgotten either. Halk Et Mobile Sales Truck affiliated to Anet will also serve as a cold storage in Manavgat. Water, beverages and food will be kept in cold storage. While the teams of the Animal Health Department of the Agricultural Services Department treat the injured animals, coordination studies are also carried out for all kinds of needs, especially the evacuation of the animals. Those who need support to evacuate their animals in fire areas call 444 94 20 and request help from the Metropolitan Municipality. Metropolitan Municipality Environmental Health teams work in coordination with Manavgat Municipality for the burial of animals that perished in the fire.

For the Manavgat fire, 60 vehicles and 200 personnel from Istanbul, Izmir, Ankara, Eskişehir, Muğla, Konya, Mersin, Isparta, Burdur also support the fire extinguishing works under the coordination of Antalya Metropolitan Municipality.
