In Portugal, just like in other West European countries, the fire service is functioning with many volunteers. The volunteer fire department is everywhere in Portugal, in every town and even village. We can find volunteer fire departments even in big cities, along with a career fire service. The government is funding them in order to purchase a fire truck, firefighting equipment, and fire apparatus maintenance.

In Portugal, aerial firefighting is very common, especially to combat wildfires and forest fires. For this purpose, the Portuguese fire service is using an innovative control system: remote monitoring system for emergencies and video-based fire surveillance. Portugal is very developed regarding the firefighting system. The country is ready to offer support to other countries in times of emergency, with trained personnel and fire apparatus.
