Challenge

In August 2017, crisis hit Albania when fires raged across the country-They did not have the capacity to fight fires during this time and it was clear that the country need greater firefighting capacities in should such a serious threat occur again. In 2009, Bodmin Rotary donated a fire engine appliance and took it to Northern Albania-however, ten years on and this appliance is dilapidated. Northern Albania need to have a working fire engine appliance in order to help support their community.

Solution

People can only fight fires if they have the right equipment, the right training and the right support to do so. This project will address this need - The volunteers will provide the knowledge, the skills and the fire engine appliance to ensure that the local community is competent in fire defence, should an emergency occur in the future. The fire safety package will help saves lives.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of this project is skilling up of the local community to save lives through Fire Safety practices. Lives will be saved and communities will be built. 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.
