CIVIL PROTECTION DEPARTMENT
(ASSISTANCE AND RESCUE FORCE)
The Malta Police Fire Brigade has been transferred to the newly
established Civil Protection Department (Dipartiment ghall-Protezzjoni

reform, all work connected with rescue and fire-fighting, undertaken by the
Malta Police Fire Brigade has been transferred to the Civil Protection
Department. The Civil Protection Act has now
been approved by the House of Representatives.
