This project started in the spring of 2008 with the donation of fire engines from the Isle of Man. Training is being given in fire fighting skills and in the organisation of a Volunteer Service in Girisu de Cris, the first of its kind in Romania. It has now developed into a fruitful partnership with the County Emergency Services who have also asked for help in some training areas. Initial talks with the Austrian Fire Service in order to supplement the training are being planned and a second rural fire service, using the “Giris” service as a model may soon start being developed.
We need money to provide logistic training in organising the volunteer fire service as well as reinforcing skills taught in the initial training.
