 edasa
 
The association of volunteer firefighters for the Attica region, EDASA, announced the start of the patrols at Mount Parnitha while also urging new volunteers to help them protect the precious, for Attica, source of oxygen.
 
 
The association of volunteer firefighters for the Attica region, EDASA, is putting together its team this summer for Mount Parnitha and has issued an invitation calling on the public to “give a little bit of their time to protect Attica’s last lung.” 
 
In its announcement, it said that the group needs as many volunteers as possible to help the Fire Service and the Parnitha Forestry Service battle the threat of summer wildfires similar to that which caused widespread destruction in 2007. 
 
The initiative of volunteer firefighters began 36 years ago and it is open to all individuals above the age of 18 who are in moderately good physical shape. It does not require any particular knowledge, since all the teams are led by trained members of the association.
