Romania grants aid to French authorities to help fight forest fires

Today, after consulting with President Klaus Iohannis, Prime Minister Nicolae -Ionel Ciucă asked the National Emergency Management Committee (CNSU) to convene on the Emergency Management Department (DSU)'s proposal.

DSU, through the General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations, as the national contact point, received from the Emergency Response Coordination Center of the European Commission (ERCC), through CECIS, the request of French authorities for international assistance, given the spread of forest fires on French territory.

Following the activation of the European Civil Protection Mechanism, the Government of Romania decided to grant emergency external humanitarian aid to the French authorities.

Thus, with the support of the Romanian Ministry of National Defense, two aircraft from the PAPA Strategic Air Transport Base, through the resources of the Romanian Ministry of Defence, will carry out an international support mission in France as of August 11, 2022, to assist the French authorities to contain forest fires on their territory. The two aircraft departing from Bucharest and Timișoara will fly logistical support consisting of a firefighting task force of 77 personnel with 17 response equipment.

The aid will be granted based on a request for international assistance submitted by the French Government through the European Civil Protection Mechanism.

Given the current context, in which several European countries are facing outbreaks of wildfires, we remind you that the Romanian state also supported the Greek authorities with specialized response teams, at the request of the Greek Government, through the European Protection Mechanism Civil.

Romania continues to honour its international commitments, standing in solidarity with France, our traditional partner and friend that has supported and continues to support the Romanian people in numerous situations.
