Portugal activations - Danger, danger, danger!

Activations in Portugal - DANGER !!!

Today, a forest fire killed 19 people in Portugal. Most of them are on their cars.

A heat wave with temperatures of 40+ C and east wind put the country into red warning.

This is a problem across de country and no safety is safety enough.

So, if you plan to do a SOTA activation in the next days, should be aware of the danger (dehydritation, fire, etc).
Take advice with municipal civil protection (Câmara Municipal/Town Hall).

Stay safe!
