FANION

OPERATIONAL OBJECTIVE OF THE 10th FIREFIGHTERS GROUP COMMAND

The 10th Firefighters Group is the largest Formation of the National Fire Brigade in terms of territorial coverage and manpower. It covers the Centre Region, home to the political capital and institutions of the Republic, the South and East Regions, that is, around 47.35% of the country’s total surface area.

Given the size of the territory covered, the 10th Firefighters Group has set itself the task of ensuring efficient operational coverage by bringing emergency services closer to the people and their property in order to reduce response time.
