He also asked for dissemination of fire prevention and fighting, especially the prevention and control of forest fires in the dry season.

At the ceremony, General To Lam presented seedlings to the Phu Tho Provincial Public Security; and presented the public security forces and people of 3 communes in Phu Tho province with equipment for forest and environmental protection.
