With the State of Alarm restrictions lifted, the GER firefighters’ rescue unit is already being called out more often.

Alicante province’s Fire Brigades Consortium revealed that between April 6 and May 14 they were called out on 11 occasions, although more than half of the callouts took place between May 9 and 14 once regional perimeters reopened and larger groups were allowed on excursions.
