"Now we are starting the first such level exercises in Ukraine, which our specialists will conduct independently as trainers," he said.
The Deputy Head of the SESU also emphasized that conducting the Rescue Days in Ukraine is a great indicator of confidence in the Service, and their result will enable Ukraine to join in conducting such large-scale exercises on an ongoing basis .
Thus, within 4 days, SESU rescuers will be able to improve the level of proffesional training in response to traffic accidents and learn how to work with new emergency rescue equipment by directly working out various crash scenarios in thirteen training sites.
During the opening of the exercises, the transfer of 12 special emergency rescue vehicles for the territorial divisions of SESU was also held. In particular, the heads of Vinnitsa, Donetsk, Zhytomyr, Kyiv, Kirovohrad, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Poltava, Ternopil, Khmelnytskyi, Rivne and Cherkasy SESU garrisons received the keys to new cars.
