Support to Greek Emergency and Rescue Services

Modern equipment is key in ensuring the safety of rescue workers, as well as the people in danger they’re called upon to assist. TAP is a proud supporter of Greek Emergency and Rescue Services. Over the years, TAP has donated almost €100,000 in equipment to the Civil Protection Service in Evros, the Voluntary Disaster Response Team in Kastoria, the Fire Service of Central Macedonia, and the Hellenic Rescue Team.
