Support for the Algerian Civil Protection Service

Algeria has had a civil protection service since its independence, working in the areas of disaster prevention, emergency response and operational interventions. But the current instability in the region makes it necessary to strengthen and modernise the service.

This is the rationale behind this project based on the results of the National Risk Analysis and Coverage Plan developed with the help of the French Civil Security Service (CIVIPOL). The project's main objectives are to significantly increase the number of personnel in the civil protection service, to acquire fire fighting equipment and the general and specialised training of the staff. The project will be supported by Spanish experts from the Civil Protection and emergency services and the Spanish Ministry of the Interior.

This project will last 24 months and has a budget of 1,500,000 euros, it is financed by the European Commission and managed by the French Ministry of Interior as a leading partner and FIIAPP as junior partner.
