Alerta (Forest Fire Alert Association) fundraises to provide water, food and clothing to those Bombeiros battling wildfires and also for the purchase of firefighting equipment and uniforms.

The Alerta Auction proceeds will help support our Bombeiros across the Algarve and Lower Alentejo who risk their lives saving people, animals and properties from the devastation of forest fires.
