Agoncillo, (EFE).- Forest firefighters in La Rioja train daily in anticipation of the recently started summer season of high risk of fires, with exercises such as boarding one of the helicopters they have available to deal with these situations if necessary.

The Government delegate in La Rioja, Beatriz Arraiz; and the Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural World and Environment, Noemí Manzanos, attended this Tuesday a demonstration of the training carried out by these professionals at the Logroño-Agoncillo airport.

In this training, a group of 9 technicians have practiced climbing into the helicopter, which they have loaded with their firefighting equipment and which, then, has flown over the runway for a few meters before remaining still, still in operation, so that the firefighters could get out of it.
