Challenge

In August 2017, Albania was hit by one of the worst wildfire seasons in recent times, with fires raging across the country. Authorities said wildfires burned throughout the week, with up to 20 hot spots were seen in one week. During the crisis, their Prime Minister Edi Rama said that all state structures were being used in the emergency, despite the need to have greater firefighting capacities in place and that their capacities remain low in the face of such a serious threat.

Solution

During the fires of 2017, the country's Defence Minister said 40 percent of the country's active duty personnel were involved in the firefighting operations and urged people to come together to fight existing fires and prevent new ones from starting. People can only do this if they have the right equipment, the right training and the right support. This project will address this - it will provide the skills and fire engine appliance to ensure that the local community is competent in fire defence

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of this project is skilling up of the local community to save lives through Fire Safety practices intended to reduce the destruction caused by fire - Fire Safety measures include those that are intended to prevent ignition of an uncontrolled fire, and those that are used to limit the development and effects of a fire after it starts. An impact upon the local community and families, is that the project will provide employment and have a positive effect on the economy.
