Amman, The Civil Defense Department (CDD) and the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) on Tuesday signed a cooperation agreement to boost the CDD's volunteer capabilities and establish voluntary centers throughout the Kingdom.
The agreement also aims at training a number of volunteers on civil defense operations, as well as meeting their modern machinery and equipment needs.
The deal was signed by CDD's Director-General Maj. Gen. Mustafa Abed Rabbo al-Bazaiah and the deputy head of international department at the agency, Florain Webber, in the presence of the agency's director of the Jordanian Civil Defense Volunteer Project.
The TWH's cooperation project came as a result of joint efforts and close relations between the Jordanian and German governments, and as an active contribution to the development of Jordan's civil defense services, especially in the volunteer training and rehabilitation to support the CDD effectively, especially during "emergency and unusual circumstances," al-Bazaiah stressed.
For his part, Webber praised the CDD's efforts in training and rehabilitating volunteers in theory and practice, expressing the German government's readiness to push ahead with the implementation of this project and to provide all forms of support to enhance the CDD's capacity to carry out its humanitarian tasks efficiently and professionally.
