Almeria City has taken delivery of a brand new fire engine from the provincial government. The cost is estimated at just over €200,000 and is part of an agreement between the province and the city.
In addition to the province’s contribution of the new vehicle, is the payment of €900,000 so the provision of the fire service can reach 20 municipalities with the city’s resources.
Mayor of Almeria City, Luis Rogelio Rodriguez-Comendador, with the president of the provincial government, Gabriel Amat, oversaw the delivery.
Rodriguez-Comendador said: “We are pleased with the fulfilment of the commitments made by both administrations, which materialised today with the release of this new multipurpose vehicle. It will be used in both urban and rural areas and will reinforce, in addition to the capital, services for 20 municipalities, all with less than 20,000 inhabitants.”
Gabriel Amat added: “We endorse the delivery of this vehicle and the economic contribution of €900,000. The collaboration that exists between governments regulates the servicing of need for many municipalities which had no formal agreement for aid or economic means.”
