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.
For the fifth year running, in 2018, Red Eléctrica sponsored the technical conference on training, study and prevention of forest fires which the Pau Costa foundation organises in collaboration with the Regional Government of Castile-La Mancha.
These sessions were held on 19 and 20 November in Toledo and focused on “prevention of forest fires and social perception”.
These conferences, which are considered a reference in the field, brought together over 200 professional experts from several of Spain’s autonomous regions and from emergency agencies from Portugal and France, as well as members of the General State Administration, from the Military Emergency Unit, from companies in the sector and university students from various centres.
The 3rd edition of the Forest Fires 2018 International Awards were also held within the framework of the conference, sponsored by Red Eléctrica with collaboration from the Council of Toledo. These awards arise from the commitment to encourage the study and development of techniques and tools for action in case of forest fires.
