According to FRWO’s website, Massoud Mansour noted: "Our main priority in FRWO is to prevent the outbreak of fires in natural resources. However, there is a need to equip the provincial offices with firefighting items in the reminder of fire season especially in provinces with higher fire risk."

Mansour said: "The real need to firefighting services is more than offered now, and for this reason, FRWO has authorized provincial offices to contract with Basij Organization and local communities in provinces to monitor and control the areas."
