FEFU student rescuers represented Russia at international exercises

Students of Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) represented Russia at the international emergency response and relief simulation exercises. The forum of the Asia-Pacific Disaster Relief Association was held in China (Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province). Rescue teams from Russia, China, Japan, Taiwan, and the United States worked out a scheme of joint work in a disaster zone.

Young rescuers practiced emergency response and relief actions, communications build-up, command center activities in the disaster zone, the interaction between medical staff, rescuers, volunteers, and life-support services.

Together with rescuers from Taiwan, the FEFU team held a large-scale rescue works in a 4-storey building, which leaned at about 40 degrees due to the earthquake. The team also worked out actions to be taken after a road traffic accident. Another simulation exercise was the sewage manhole, where people were stuck after cave-in. The participants coped with all possible consequences of an emergency within 30 hours.
