220 - Remove unnecessary weeds, dead trees, dry branches and dry organic litter from gardens
221 - Relocate gardens away from fire prone areas
222 - Burn flammable grasses around gardens in the wet season to prevent excessive fuel buildup
226 - Utilize firebreaks and windbreaks to prevent to spread of forest fires
227 - Discourage burning activities around forested areas during drought seasons
228 - Practice mix cropping/planting approach to prevent spread of fire
229 - Prescribe burning in sensitive forest areas to reduce dangerous biomass fuel buildup
230 - Regularly weed, clean and maintain woodlots
231 - Ensure that fire fighting equipment is accessible and available
232 - Train forestry stakeholders on fire management and fire fighting
233 - Plant fire resilient species (bamboo and wild thatching cane)
234 - Provide awareness to forestry stakeholders and communities on the risks of forest fires
236 - Use less fire prone grasses including Buffalo Grass
237 - Use steel or iron for fence posts
238 - Use living Fence posts which do not rapidly light
239 - Encourage some overgrazing during the dry season to prevent buildup of biomass and fuel
240 - Ensure that there is an appropriate number of stock in the pasture to remove potential fire fuel
397 - Physically remove diseased or dying trees/plants
398 - Conduct research on specific tree pests and diseases
399 - Accurately identify pest and disease agents
