The best thanks to our citizens
Stating that the citizens also showed a great example of sacrifice and struggle during forest fires, Mayor Zolan continued his speech as follows, ''The best thanks are to our citizens, who have supported us in every way. We had citizens whose vehicles burned, and one of our forestry brothers was injured. When our vehicles were damaged while reaching steep places during the fire, our mechanic shopkeepers in that district repaired our vehicle. When we offered a price, our esteemed citizens did their best to say, 'This is our support, this is what we can do. I can support the country and the forest in this way. These are the values that make us who we are. We fought together with our citizens and all our institutions. ''
