Within the framework of the visit, Ukrainian rescuers, together with their Polish counterparts, will work on issues of joint interaction and cooperation on issues of assistance between countries in the event of various types of emergencies. And today, on November 16, a conference on this topic was held in one of the hotel and restaurant complexes of the regional center of Zakarpattia.

Then the participants of the international meeting visited the Department of the SESof Ukraine in the Zakarpattia region.

In turn, Yaroslav Babyak, deputy head of the Department of SES of Ukraine in Zakarpattia region, thanked the Polish friends for their support and assistance, as well as noticed that this equipment was extremely useful for Zakarpattia rescuers, as it would help the emergency officers to provide assistance to citizens more qualitatively and promptly, who got into an accident.
