The fire-fighter department of Porto stood out at the Rescue Great Day 2018, a rescue operation by means of cords (Large Scale) held in Seville. The team from Porto achieved the general third place and first place in the Fire-fighters category. 

The competition involved high technical difficulty challenges, undertaken under adverse weather conditions, and it took place in the most iconic monuments in the Spanish city of Seville, namely Torre del Oro, Plaza de Espana, Faculty of Law, The Cathedral and in the Isla de la Cartuja.

The fundamental goal of this competition was to assess and observe working methods as well as knowledge sharing. This event was organised by the Rescue Great Day Association and the Firefighters from Seville.
