THREE MEMBERS of the HELP Denia and Marina Alta committee, President Candy Wright, Vice-President Catherine Perez Pinto and Secretary Sue Lawson visited the Bomberos Voluntarios de Cumbre del Sol, Benitachell recently.
They were welcomed by Alfred (Belgian), Edward (Dutch), Bernd (German), Wolfgang (German) and their Chief, Dieter (German). Other members not present included four English volunteers. A total of 14 firefighters make up the team.
The firefighters expressed their greatest thanks to HELP for their recent donation of €1,750, which enabled them to purchase eight new radios.
Up until now, their Chief reported, they had been managing with only one radio which they used to stay in touch with the base.
The firefighters are now able to keep in touch with one another when called out to emergencies and they are also now linked by radio to the bomberos in Denia.
The committee members left with a memento each of their visit – a baseball hat with the bomberos’ emblem.
