EU greenlights dispatch of 200 firefighters on standby in Greece – Tornos News

More than 200 firefighters and technical equipment will be sent to Greece by the European Union's civil protection mechanism during the entire fire-risk season of 2022, the European Commission said on Thursday, according to ANA.

Coordinated by the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, the firefighters and equipment will come from Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, and Romania to support Greek first responders in the event of large-scale forest fires.

This enhanced cooperation of the European fire services with Greece follows the particularly fierce and devastating 2021 wildfire season, the Commission said, on top of EU measures in preparedness for forest fires. The latter also includes the fleet of rescEU water bomber planes made available to EU member states and states participating in the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.
