A. Hatzopoulos S.A. supports the work of the Hellenic Rescue Team.

A. Hatzopoulos S.A. reinforced the Hellenic Rescue Team (HRT) by donating 50 full sets of gear, which includes protective helmets, boots and uniforms, all of which is equipment that will be utilized by the HRT for the fire protection of volunteer rescuers, operating all throughout Greece. Following the destructive fires of this past summer, and just a couple of months before the start of the next fire-prevention season, this contribution is more important than ever, especially for HRT branches that do not yet possess the necessary fire protection equipment.

With a manpower of more than 2,500 volunteers throughout Greece, the HRT participates in search and rescue operations in cases of emergencies and mass disasters, both in Greece and abroad. It is staffed by volunteers that possess a professional conscience and have undergone excellent training. The team’s mission is to provide assistance to fellow human beings, who face life-threatening risks, under any circumstances and location.

The President of HRT, Mr. Fotis Sarigiannis commented: “In these critical moments, you have demonstrated the importance of corporate social responsibility and shown the way to solidarity. Your remarkable donation makes it possible for us to continue the efforts, while it strengthens our sense of duty towards people and the environment. We cordially thank you for your trust, recognition, and support for our work.”

The inherent desire of A. Hatzopoulos S.A. to contribute to causes of environmental and social nature is part of the company’s core values, and the completion of this donation to the HRT is one more way in which we can help those in real need.
