Lviv’s firefighting tradition dates back deep into the Middle Ages, when it was one of the first in Europe to develop a special municipal service changed with protecting the city from the ever-present threat of fire. Lviv’s modern-day fire fighters came out in force in September to mark
the 650th anniversary of the city’s first firemen, offering a fun march through the downtown area that offered Lviv citizens a glimpse of the uniforms favoured by fire fighters from across the ages.
