Since 2007, Red Eléctrica established collaboration agreements with public administration entities to coordinate actions related to preventing and fighting forest fires. These agreements, in addition to addressing issues related to the forestry management in areas where electricity lines are present, encompass other commitments such as tests and trials of new solutions for preventing and fighting forest fires, carrying out awareness-raising campaigns, the provision of personal protective equipment for extinguishing fires, improving forest tracks and the refurbishment of access paths.
Currently there are agreements in place with the Regional Governments of Andalusia, Aragón, Valencia, Navarra, Castilla-La Mancha, Extremadura and the Balearic Islands, as well as with the Provincial Councils of Vizcaya and Guipúzcoa, and the Island Councils of La Palma and Tenerife.
