“It is very important to be back in the Andean region. After what happened with the fire on March 9, 2021, we got together with the mayors and the province to work immediately to provide it with the necessary infrastructure to avoid what happened a year ago,” Cabandié said.
And he added that during this time “We have brought machinery and equipment to reduce the combustible material that often causes the interface fire that destroys the houses.”
