Czech firefighters´ mission in Greece
The summer of 2021 was not very friendly for the countries of southern Europe. The long period of above-standard warm weather combined with strong winds caused a high danger and, unfortunately, also the reality of a number of forest fires in Greece, Albania, Italy, Turkey and Macedonia. Despite the fact that forest fires are a regular seasonal affair for these states, the extent of the fires this year was  enormous.
