Combating Forest Fires

In 2015, outbreak of fire and the resulting toxic haze devastated large areas of Indonesia, closing schools and businesses, as well as spiking food and water prices. The outbreak also caused widespread respiratory problems. To assist the affected areas, the U.S. government, through USAID, supplied protective equipment to frontline firefighters to improve the effectiveness of fire suppression efforts.
