Firefighters in Czech Republic - The multitasking Fire Brigade of the Moravian-Silesian region

OSTRAVA – Summer is coming and the intense heat can cause many troubles to the environment, people and animals. This is expected to be the busiest season for firefighters in terms of emergency calls and operations, starting  from wildfires, for example.

In Czech Republic, the Moravin-Silesian Region Fire Brigade started working on 2001, when regions have been finally settled. The region of Ostrava is located at the North-East part of the country, near the border with Poland and Slovacchia, so that allows also cross-border operations. Moravian-Silesian Region Fire Brigade’s tasks are operations in case of traffic accidents, technical rescue, providing disaster control and of course, fire prevention. As Fire Brigade we are also in charge of Civil Protection missions, like public warning systems as well as crisis management.

In order to understand more about this Brigade and how it operates, we interviewed Mr. Vladimir Vlcek, Ph.D.  Fire chief officer of Fire Rescue Brigade of Moravian-Silesian region, Ostrava Czcech Republic.
