Last Friday we gave a very warm welcome to our offices to the numerous Abruzzo Region Civil Protection Associations who received the recently delivered Forest Firefighting pickups.
Only a few days ago, at an official event of the regional Civil Protection in front of the Region building in L'Aquila, the official presentation of the vehicles was held, in the presence of the President Marco Marsilio, the Regional Civil Protection Director Mauro Casinghini and many other authorities.
