Aljezur Bombeiros get new Radios!

Bombeiros on the Algarve’s west coast are receiving each other loud and clear after a local residents’ organisation presented them with 10 state-of-the-art radios following the recent wildfires.

Community association Am-ovate held a fund-raiser—a Beatles-themed concert, starring Algarve tribute band The Bottles—that brought in €3,120 for the firefighters of Aljezur.
The amount raised included €500 from concert hosts the Restaurante Fonte do Vale. And discussions with fire chief Mario Costa about the best way of utilising the funds then resulted in the decision to buy the much-needed communications equip-ment, plus 12 suits of fire-retardant jackets and trousers.

Five years ago Amovate helped organise and deliver to Aljezur bombeiros the donation of €50,000 worth of state-of-the-art firefighting and rescue equipment from a UK fire service charity.
Fire chief Costa now intends for himself and his men to thank the people of Vale da Telha by bringing the brigade’s new fire engine and ambulance to the Restaurante Fonte do Vale sometime in September, and displaying the donated radios and uniforms for members and residents to see them first hand.
