Emergency Ministry holds emergency situation exercises

Command-staff exercises are continuing at the Ural Regional Center of the Russian Emergency Ministry in Sverdlovsk Region.

The exercises consist of Emergency Ministry personnel eliminating the consequences of an emergency situation connected with disruptions of power, heat and water supply systems caused by a sharp fall in temperature and wind of up to 25 m/c.
