Then the Americans get acquainted in detail with the material and technical equipment of the fire departments, in particular, the 21st State Fire and Rescue Unit for the protection of the Oleshkiv District. The mission has now brought humanitarian aid in the form of sets of combat clothing and compressed air vehicles for the 21st SFRU.

So, the instructors conducted practical training sessions with Oleshkiv rescuers on the peculiarities of work in imported equipment and combat clothing, as well as took part in tactical exercises near the village of Nechaeve on the theme: "extinguishing of fires in ecosystems". They clearly saw the specifics of the extinguishing of fires in the forest, as it is carried out in the Kherson Oblast and shared the algorithm of American firefighters to eliminate such fires. The American instructors were happy with the actions of Kherson rescuers.
