Izmir Metropolitan Municipality took another precaution to prevent forest fires that broke out one after another throughout the country. In this context, Balçova Cable Car Facilities were closed for a week.
Following the ban on entry to forest areas brought by the Izmir Governor's Office, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality was also closed to visitors to the Cable Car Facilities in Balçova. No visitors will be allowed to the facility until Tuesday, August 10.
In order to support the implementation of an unauthorized entry ban to forest areas, which will be valid until October 1, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Police Department has also started a voluntary work. The teams are working in the forests surrounding İzmir city center with the support of electric cars and aerial drones. Until the end of summer, it is aimed to prevent situations that may cause fires with the checkpoints created on the roads leading to the forests, especially on the weekends, and with patrol teams on the forest roads.
