On March 30 in Mariupol, on the basis of the 3rd State Fire and Rescue Detachment, a solemn ceremony of handing over a modern and high-tech special machine of radiation and chemical reconnaissance and laboratory control (SMRCR-LC) to the Main Department of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine in Donetsk Oblast took place. The event was attended by Henrik Villadsen, OSCE Project Coordinator in Ukraine, Mykola Ilchenko, Deputy Head of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, representatives of the Donetsk Regional State Administration and the leadership of the Main Department of the SES of Ukraine in Donetsk Oblast.
Ensuring the safety of population and rapid response to emergencies is the main task of rescue units. However, getting information from people who are in trouble and in stress is sometimes very problematic. One of the most important issues is determining the exact location of the event or emergency, route planning and communication with the applicant. Thanks to modern technology, this problem can be easily solved.
On February 16, representatives of the UN Refugee Agency met with the leadership of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine in Donetsk Oblast, handed over certificates and passed over 23 sets of tools and equipment for rescuers who will carry out restoration work in settlements on the demarcation line, worth almost three million UAH.
