Angelov about Forest Fires: No State of Crisis Will Be Declared

Director of the Crisis Management Centre (CMC) Stojance Angelov said that the risk estimation group at CMC decided to not declare a state of crisis in the country due to the fires. “We decided to not declare a state of crisis, but we still follow the situation very carefully, and we will hold regular session to determine the interventions necessary on terrain. President Stevo Pendarovski already issued orders for engagement of the army, and because we have the army teams at our disposal, we do not need to declare a state of crisis,” Angelov said.
