The FBU have a long history in supporting the Palestinian people, in recent years the Scottish Region of the FBU have led the union's continued support for Palestinian firefighters, through the facilitation of training here in the UK and sending kit and equipment to Palestinian firefighters in Nablus, Ramallah, and Gaza.
A decision was made to support the filming of a documentary during a visit to Palestine and Israel by FBU officials in Oct/Nov last year, ' Firefighters under Occupation '. This relates the experiences of Palestinian firefighters, their families, ordinary Palestinians and Israeli firefighters in their conflicted land. The director, Ciaran Gibbons, captures the Palestinians firefighters frustration and anger at facing two enemies Fire and the Israeli Occupation Forces.
