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.
In 2018, Red Eléctrica, in collaboration with the Regional Government of Castilla y León, organised three days of training aimed at the environmental agents and wardens who participate in forest fire-fighting operations in the province of Zamora.
The training sessions, which were held in the city of Zamora, in Rabanillo and in the Casa de la Juventud de Villardeciervos, covered the prevention and management of forest fires related to power lines.
The training sessions were attended by nearly ninety environmental agents and wardens and covered, among other subjects, issues related to the handling of communication equipment in forest fires and the application of the Forest Fire Emergency Handling System (SMEIF).
The purpose of this training action, which is included in the agreement currently in force between the Department of Development and Environment of the Regional Government of Castilla y León and Red Eléctrica, is to coordinate actions to prevent and fight forest fires.
