On the news, fires have been a familiar story. The reason being is climate change. As the world gets hotter and hotter, dry areas such as California are more vulnerable to fires: because if there is one tiny spark, it can easily set off a wildfire. These wildfires are not kind to our ecosystems, as they destroy homes, wildlife habitats, and timber. As a side effect, it pollutes the environment by emitting carbon dioxide. The smoke emitted by fire is always a health concern, as it is unhealthy for humans.

India recognizes the tragedies of families who lose their homes due to these wildfires and other events. India plans to extend their fire program by 2040 and make sure its citizens are safe. With the development of more high-rise buildings, they were taking into consideration the dangers of fires, implementing new fire prevention systems to further secure themselves.

The committee should look favorable on improving the conditions for firefighters and fire teams as fires are a force that must be combatted as climate change soars throughout the world by enforcing new policies to add fire prevention systems to buildings and taking precautions of what buildings should be made out of.
