Red Eléctrica-UME Coordination

Training sessions regarding fire prevention and safety in high voltage installations.

Red Eléctrica contributes to the training of the State Law Enforcement Agencies, and other public service personnel, in matters regarding safety in electricity facilities and fire prevention by organising specific training sessions.

Since 2013, Red Eléctrica has collaborated with the Military Emergency Unit (UME - Unidad Militar de Emergencias) on various activities to train UME personnel through practice sessions in electricity facilities and via emergency-simulation drills.

This collaboration facilitates the coordination between both entities and enables a better knowledge of UME’s personnel in the event the UME needs to act in emergency situations that affect the electricity transmission grid.

Red Eléctrica participated in 2017, for the second consecutive year, in the emergency drill organised by the Balearic Islands Government and the Military Emergency Unit (UME), with the aim of fostering integration of the Balearic Islands’ competent emergency organisations and improving the UME's capacity for reaction in the archipelago. In total, 476 officers
