Firefighters suspend communications on operations

Portugal’s Civil Protection authority has said it maintains a “prompt and effect” service to the population.

It comes the after the communication of operational information from local fire-fighters to central rescue commands was suspended from midnight Sunday.

Home Affairs Minister Eduardo Cabrita said suspending the information “is illegal and puts people’s safety at risk as it affects the coordination of response means”. Fire-fighters have said help is not at risk.
