Recently we visited the fire department in Varna, Bulgaria. We spoke to the chief of the fire department, Mr. Tichomir Totev.
Everyone was very friendly and they welcomed us with open arms! In order to give you some impressions of the present technical equipment, we have attached some pictures here. The group picture shows members of Benefit & Joy with fireworkers and Mr. Totev (2nd from left).
