Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca sent a message on September 13, Firefighters’ Day, highlighting the professionalism of the rescuers lately displayed when Romania was hit be severe weather phenomena, such as drought, floods and wildfires, according to Agerpres.
In his message, the prime minister noted the „courage, dedication and tenacity of those who save lives and give a helping hand to the reconstruction” of local communities.
„We were all impressed by the professionalism of the rescuers, also lately displayed, when Romania was hit by severe weather phenomena – drought, floods, wildfires. In their daily missions of providing emergency medical assistance, they show humanity, managing some of the most diverse challenges with empathy and respect for those who suffer.”
Ciuca added that the training of firefighters „to the highest standards” is also valued at the international level.
„Always on duty, the Romanian firefighters proved once again that they are European rescuers. The difficult missions in Greece and France, the collaboration with the partner teams in Europe, demonstrated that solidarity and courage are universal values, translated in the field through superhuman efforts and authentic deeds of heroism. Thanks and gratitude to our rescuing heroes! Romania and the whole of Europe count on you! Happy Firefighers’ Day and good luck with the rescue missions,” said the PM.
Ciuca also said that firefighters had an important role, including from a historical point of view.
„Since the heroic victory on Dealul Spirii 174 years ago, the Romanian firefighters have gained the trust and respect of the public, through most of the times extremely difficult missions. The fact that today Romania is a functional and safe state is also due to the tireless efforts of those who protect and save us,” Nicolae Ciuca said.
