More than 320 firefighter interventions in less than 24 hours

France 3/Scoop, Aug 6

Hérault firefighters intervened no less than 320 times in a 24 hours period this last weekend.

Summer is their busiest time, due not only to the persistent heat, but the fact that in some areas the population more than doubles at this time of year.

“The presence of many tourists in the department automatically generates additional activity, which is why we are strengthening the workforce in the summer“ said a spokesperson for SDIS34.

On average 600 firefighters are mobilised in a single department in Occitanie, and for the days at risk, they number more than 800.
