Rapid Response Protests

The regional government has rubber-stamped a new emergency response unit, which will deal with incidents across the Valencian Community. It will be made up of firefighters and forest fire specialists but its formation has been opposed by all of the region’s fire unions. They claim it is a waste of money and will hinder coordination during emergencies, with 100 firefighters protesting the move outside the Orihuela meeting. Eggs were thrown at the Regional President, who had to be protected by National Police officers.
