So, in Odessa Oblast, the relevant event took place at the Tarutino district state administration. SESU workers  conducted a practical training session on the use of fire extinguishers, and reminded the actions of the staff in case of a fire.
In addition, in order to increase the readiness of the units in case of emergencies and fires at facilities that will be used during the elections, relevant tactical and special exercises are held throughout the country. 
In particular, this week, rescuers of Shchastia, Lisichansk Towns and Novoaydarsk district of Luhansk oblast worked on actions in the premises of polling stations to eliminate conditional fire, rescue and provision of medical assistance to the affected, and actions in case of disconnection of electricity supply at the polling station.
