Added to this is the ban on the sale, transport and use of fireworks with the exception of pyrotechnic shows that have been declared to the prefecture. This also reminds us that the harvests “are authorized only to people who have, near the place of agricultural work, fire-fighting means, namely a water tank and a dethatcher. This proximity means the means available in the field concerned by the works or in an adjoining field.»

In addition, the prefecture maintains the bans already existing since July 13: releasing flying lanterns, producing flames in natural spaces, smoking in these same natural spaces, mowing and pruning on the edges of the road.

Météo France maintains at least until Tuesday July 19 afternoon the orange vigilance on the department. Temperatures are expected to approach 40 degrees at the height of the day.
