To celebrate the 110th anniversary of the creation of the Corps, the 30th anniversary of the Fontvieille Rescue Centre, and the 25th anniversary of the Condamine Rescue Centre, Monaco’s firefighters are organising an open day on Sunday 23rd June.
The two barracks will be open to the public between 10am and 6pm, also in celebration of World Day for Civil Protection and its 2019 theme: ‘The protection of our children’.
The fun event will feature animations for the kids and workshops for the wider public, who will have the opportunity to witness dynamic rescue manoeuvres and demonstrations to showcase the many facets of the trade.
There will also be places of relaxation, and souvenirs and beverages for sale.
In addition to discovery, it is hoped that the day will encourage young people to pursue a career in the Corps.
