Fire-fighting device on the ground until October 31st

The Minister of Internal Affairs, Eduardo Cabrita, extended until October 31 the land-based device for fighting rural fires in fire departments.

In a statement, this Wednesday, the Ministry of Internal Administration explains that the extension comes in light of weather forecasts, “which continue to favor the occurrence and development of rural fires.” The objective is “to ensure the maintenance of an adequate response device to the risk of rural fire”.

According to the tutelage, this device will maintain a workforce of 3,933 firefighters, corresponding to 798 teams, supported by 848 vehicles, which complement the permanent ground device, and the 41 air assets that remain in service until the end of October, under the terms of the National Operational Directive No. 2.
