AROUND 300 firefighters in Murcia Region have taken to the streets to protest against intrusion and privatisation.

Belonging to the Consortium for Firefighting in the Region of Murcia (CEIS), the Fire Department of Murcia and Cartagena, the group marched from Murcia’s Plaza de la Fuensanta to the Plaza Cardenal Belluga with a banner reading ‘public safety at risk’ as they warned against privatisation of the industry.

They are also calling for the introduction of an emergency law that helps regulate the various services provided within the community, including training and qualifications. The law is in place in other regions, but not in Murcia.
