Prosecution of volunteer firefighters who are suspected of setting wildfires

        

In relation to the news articles posted on the Greek Μedia about the prosecution of volunteer firefighters who are suspected of setting wildfires and blackmailing mayors, we inform the public and the Μedia that the specific individuals are NOT Volunteer Firefighters but members of an NGO.


According to the 4029/2011 Greek Law, the term “Volunteer Firefighter” refers ONLY to the citizens who serve in the Greek Fire Service voluntarily and without any pay, along with their colleagues (career firefighters and seasonal firefighters).

 

According to the 4249/2014 Greek Law, the members of NGOs who act in the area of Civil Protection are called “Civil Protection Volunteers”.

 

The term Volunteer Firefighter and its continuous mistaken use to characterize individuals who a) do not belong to the Greek Fire Service, and b) do not offer firefighting and rescue work as members of the Greek Fire Service, is unfortunately widely used. As a result, the public is misinformed and prejudice is created against the 1,700 Greek Volunteer Firefighters who serve in the Greek Fire Service today.

 

Until today, no Greek Volunteer Firefighter has in any way been suspected or charged with arson. News articles that were posted in the previous years about individuals being suspects in cases of arson were mistakenly referred to as Volunteer Firefighters.
