The Ayuntamiento de Xàbia hosted the first meeting between the towns of Xàbia, Denia and Jesus Pobre to agree a coordinated local strategy, to strengthen the safety and security of Montgó. Included in this initial contact were the mayors of the three administrations, José Chulvi, Vincent Grimalt and Javier Scotto, and councillors related to public safety and the environment, together with representatives of the police, firefighters and emergency crews as well as Protección Civil representatives.

The meeting was an opportunity to put on the table the most urgent needs and problems to be solved. It was agreed to continue working at a technical level establishing both preventive actions and effective responses in the event of fires. The three municipalities will seek a greater awareness and involvement by the Generalitat Valenciana in this protected area and a greater allocation of resources and investment in fire prevention with the implementation of employment programmes focused on forestry clearing.

Efforts will be made locally with means for preventive monitoring and greater control over the prohibition of burning and cleaning of uncontrolled tips. This, besides being strategic and highly visible, will serve as a deterrent to arson.

The municipalities agreed that the recent fires, especially the one experienced last October, served to make it clear that "neither the fires nor Montgó have borders" and exposed the operational shortcomings for a rapid and effective response.

Specific issues were tabled such as the need to divide up the sectors of the park, both for organizing fire prevention and reviewing the condition of hydrants and the water pressure to ensure they are operational and install water resources at strategic points for refuelling air assets.

Apart from the Parque Natural del Montgó being an "urban forest" in addition to its environmental value, there are many residents and homes to protect. In this sense, it has highlighted the need to train residents so that besides contributing to fire prevention and they know how to act without panic in the event of fire. It has also agreed to strengthen the awareness activities to avoid negligence and highlight the cause of many fires (such as barbecues, agricultural burning or the use of things like flying lanterns) and include information material for tourists visiting the area.
