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

Red Eléctrica contributes to training State Safety Forces and Brigades, and members of other public services on safety matters in electrical installations and fire prevention by organising specific sessions.

Red Eléctrica collaborated in 2018 with the Council of Tenerife’s Sustainability, Environment and Safety Area, through the Unit for Prevention and Extinguishing of Forest Fires and the Office of Environmental Participation and Voluntary Work, in training and provision equipment for volunteers involved as logistical support in management of forest fires.

The objective was preparation of the logistical support teams that collaborate with the front-line units, taking into account the eight major emergencies caused by fires, hurricanes and floods in Tenerife during the last decade.
