Gerald Schimpf, officer and spokesperson of the professional Viennese firefighting brigade handed over the keyes of the firefighting vehicle to Mesud Jusufović, president of the Volunteer fire fighting brigade Alipašin Most. He stressed that this donation represents the continuation of the long lasting cooperation between the Viennese and Sarajevan fire fighters, and the friendly cities of Vienna and Sarajevo.
The handover ceremony was attended by the Deputy Mayor Milan Trivić, who expressed his appreciation for the donation on behalf of the City of Sarajevo and its citizens, expressing his conviction that the future cooperation between our two cities will be intensified through joint projects such as Vienna Days in Sarajevo.
„This is the second vehicle that we received from the City of Vienna. It can carry a whole department of fire fighters, and the novelty is that it possesses rescue equipment so that we could help rescuing people injured in car accidents and people trapped under ruins“ stressed Jusufović, the president of Volunteer Fire Fighting Brigade Alipašin Most.
