OPERATIONAL OBJECTIVE SET FOR THE COMMANDER OF THE 50th FIREFIGHTERS GROUP (GSP)

The 50th Firefighters Group is responsible for the North-West and West administrative regions. The security situation in the North-West, combined with the extensive and deteriorating state of communications routes, constitutes real challenges for the 50th GSP in the day-to-day conduct of its missions.

Regular training of personnel, keeping equipment and vehicles in good condition, combined with the particular resilience of personnel, are the bases of the actions of the 50th GSP.

A preventive approach based on raising awareness among the administrative authorities, the general public and economic operators of the need to comply with fire safety regulations is implemented on a daily basis to reduce the risk of fire outbreaks.
