The financial directive 2022, approved by the Ministry of Internal Administration (MAI), establishes the State's contribution to the expenses resulting from the interventions of the fire brigades in the different operational devices of civil protection, namely in the DECIR.

In addition to the increase in the daily value that each volunteer firefighter will receive, from 57 to 61 euros, the daily contribution to command elements also rises from 67 to 71 euros, says the MAI in a statement.

The Ministry supervised by José Luís Carneiro highlights the 7% increase in the amounts associated with the daily contribution made to firefighters integrated in the devices.

This year's financial directive updates the amounts of food expenses by around 15%, changing the value of lunch and dinner from 8.75 to 10 euros.
