French-Cypriot cooperation in disaster response matters [el] [fr]


two dog handlers and a veterinarian reservist of Essonne et du Val d’Oise Fire Department and Rescue carried out a mission in Cyprus in the Civil Defense Force in March 2017.

The French teams had the task of strengthening the response and investigation capabilities using the police dogs of the Civil Defense Force in Cyprus and the fire brigade, in case of disasters.

This collaboration, which took place in various training spots of the Civil Defense Force, is part of the declaration of intent signed in Cyprus in October 2016, by the French Director General of Civil Security and his Cypriot counterpart.

Others training programs will follow in the coming months, mainly by visits to France.
