  • [01] Fire Brigade photo exhibition

    A photographic exhibition organised by the Fire Department opened Friday at the Athens Metro station at Syntagma Square.

    The Fire Department leadership presented the photo exhibition on the Fire Brigade's work to Public Order Minister Vyron Polydoras and the mass media.

    Nationwide, more than 20,000 urban fires are handled successfully each year while the well-trained firefighting personnel has managed to limit considerably the destruction caused by forest fires.

    The Fire Brigade also intervenes in cases of natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods, having as its top priority the protection of human lives.

    The specially trained personnel also play a life-saving role in cases of serious traffic accidents by helping to disengage auto accident victims from their smashed cars.

    The Greek Fire Brigade was founded in 1930 and falls under the jurisdiction of the ministry of public order.
