Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Center

Hungarian rescuers in Nis

Among main tasks (participation in the training exercises of Serbian firefighters, assistance in emergency elimination, holding of educational course for Serbian colleagues on the Center base and in Russia) RSHC leadership pays great attention to cooperation with the relevant agencies from neighboring states. Nowadays, rescuers from Bosnia, Macedonia, and Republic of Srpska are improving their professional level on the Russian Emergencies Ministry courses with the Center support.

In the framework of such cooperation the chairman of the Hungarian Voluntary Rescue Association Christoph Bacay and three of his colleagues arrived to the Center. The goal is to establish working relationship between two institutions.

During the visit Hungarian colleagues had opportunity to learn about with RSHC resource base: Emergency Management Center, warehouse and “The Rescuer Path”. Also training exercises at the field base - on a mountain ridge Jelasnica were shown to guests. Russian rescuers together with the professionals from Serbian Mountain Rescue Service demonstrated their practical skills.

The sides got agreement about the next step of their cooperation. And first of all it will be joint participation in practical training organized by Serbian Emergency Management Sector in the beginning of December. The topic: “The Mountain rescue”.
