A contest among the teams of high school seniors of the local communities was organized by Emergency Department of Altay District (East-Kazakhstan Region) and sponsored by the largest mining company of the region. The young rescuers competed in the knowledge and skills required during emergency response.
The contest was conducted outdoors with all the safety requirements observed.
The boys and girls demonstrated their first aid skills in practice, confirmed theoretical knowledge of safety rules, were creative and artistic when drawing posters on the selected topics, singing songs, reciting poems. The participants also tried firefighter roles.
The simulation show performed by professional mine rescuers and prepared by Kazzinc was a surprise gift for the teenagers.
As a result all the teams got equal scores. And all the young responders were awarded with prizes sponsored by Kazzinc.
This event was a part of an ongoing emergency prevention campaign - a joint project of metallurgists and Emergency Department.
