Fire rescue and debris removal unit to be created in Alicante

RESCUE TEAMS: specialist unit to be formed amongst Alicante fire crews to deal with any potential disasters

ALICANTE’S Provincial Fire Consortium is working on establishing a rescue and debris removal unit.

Plans are to be put in place to create a specific set of performances to act against landslides or earthquakes, given the high seismic risk in the province of Alicante and especially the southern regions. Approval to create such a unit within the fire brigade was approved in 2005 but in 10 years has yet to come to fruition.

The consortium is drafting the proposal and hopes it will be operational in 2016.
