Italy. 2 euros. 2020 year. National Fire Corps of Italy.
The National Fire Corps (it. Corpo Nazionale dei Vigili del Fuoco, CNVVF) is the fire and rescue service of Italy. It is a part of the Department of Firefighters, Public Rescuers and Civil Defense of Italy (it. Dipartimento dei Vigili del Fuoco, del Soccorso Pubblico e della Difesa Civile) of the Italian Ministry of the Interior. The task of the corps is to ensure the safety of people, animals and property, as well as to provide technical assistance to industrial enterprises. The Corps also provides public safety in emergencies such as chemical, bacteriological, radiological and nuclear attacks.
The department consists of eight central directorates, 18 regional offices and one hundred provincial commands, with approximately 80 stations across the country.
Immediately after the unification of Italy, local fire brigades began to form in various regions of the country. In the 1860s, there was no organized fire brigade in many municipalities and entire regions of the Apennine Peninsula.
