They carry out a transmission of command in the Caracas Fire Department

This Tuesday, the act of transmission of command of the Command of the Fire Brigade of Caracas was carried out, which General Pablo Palacios assumed with great responsibility and energy.

The mayor, A/J Carmen Meléndez, pointed out on her Twitter social network account that it was “tI am proud to have accompanied our head of government, Nahum Fernández, in this emblematic institutional activity in this body of social protection».

At the same time, he said that the Caracas Firefighters are a reference for service, sacrifice, effort, discipline and dedication to protect the people in a timely manner and with great human quality.

It should be noted that the Caracas Firefighters celebrated 85 years of dedication, discipline and study. Starting in the 1920s, efforts began by a group of people to form a work team in charge of preventing and safeguarding the goods and lives of citizens against accidents and/or risk situations in Venezuela.

According to the Dictionary of the History of Venezuela, the first investigations on the creation of a fire department in Venezuela date back to 1882. Maracaibo (Zulia state) was the first city in the country to make the initiative possible.

On February 24, 1936, the first institution of the Caracas Fire Department was born, through a decree of the Governor of the Federal District.

However, it is on July 5, 1937 when it was officially founded by the then president of Venezuela, Eleazar López Contreras. At that time, the professional training school had not been formed.
