The OWHC launches its new program: OWHC Hotline…

OWHC member cities are often keen to take advantage of the network to identify examples and experiences on various subjects related to urban management and heritage preservation. To facilitate the collection and sharing of information, the General Secretariat is proposing this new tool to complement the technical assistance offered to members.

All you need to do is send an e-mail to [email protected] providing all the information needed to understand the request.

The City of Quito wishes to gather information about:

Firefighting procedures in heritage areas.

The information expected by the City of Quito may include, but are not limited to:

  • Particular regulations
  • Specific skills
  • Dedicated training
  • Lessons learned (obstacles encountered and solutions implemented to overcome them, etc.)

Help Quito gather information on the ideal conditions for firefighters to intervene in heritage areas, and contribute to the safety of all citizens!
