Sweden has asked for European help to fight forest fires.

Sweden has asked for European help to fight forest fires. Italian and French fire-fighting aeroplanes have joined the operation. Greece and the EU's Copernicus Programme are helping with maps. This is the 1st time Sweden has activated the EU Civil Protection Mechanism with a request for assistance. We are seeing more disasters, more extreme weather everywhere – so it makes all the more sense for countries to help each other through the EU.
