Machnouk signed decree to render civil defense volonteers full-time
Minister of Interior, Nuhad al-Mashnouk, said during the celebration of the International Civil Defense Day that he has kept his promise and "signed the final decree that will open the door for rendering civil defense volunteers full-timers,” stressing that "the efforts exerted by civil defense elements over the past years have not been in vain."
He pointed out that "coordination between the Lebanese civil defense and its subordinates in the world has put it on the map."
"You symbolize one of the most important human values, which is volunteering to serve others in the face of the wrath of nature," Mashnouk said.
"I commit to the constant pursuit of the collection of all the rights of civil defense members, until the modernization of this apparatus is completed," the minister concluded.
