The Board of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon and the Board of Directors of CHLN would like to publicly express their deepest thanks to all the professionals of both institutions who were involved in the joint effort to respond promptly and with the highest professionalism to the fire on the past Wednesday night, which partially destroyed our Aula Magna.
We would like to highlight the excellent collaboration between the teams of both institutions in monitoring the whole process. We are still in the aftermath and evaluating the damages, but we can say that the prompt action of all avoided that the consequences of this accident were even more serious.
We thank the Firefighters of Lisbon and the Civil Protection for the flawless way in which they intervened and coordinated the whole situation.
Now it is time to evaluate the damage and make repairs as quickly as possible to recover the emblematic room of our university campus.
Thank you all.
Fausto J. Pinto – Director of FMUL
Carlos das Neves Martins – Chairman of the Board of Directors of CHLN
