Heavy rainfall, flooding and storms – these were the challenges with which the participants in the international exercise “EuLuxModEx 2014” were confronted in Luxembourg's Echternach last weekend. More than 100 international volunteers from Belgium, Germany, France, Italy and Slovakia took part in the trans-national training.
Last weekend, THW volunteers set off for two German-Polish exercises. During a fictitious massive accident with several cars and lorries at the border post of Swiecko on the A 12, the volunteers found, among others, several persons who were trapped in a car wreck. On the other hand, about 130 THW experts were confronted with several different scenarios, when they took part in the large-scale exercise “WODA 2014”, together with the Polish fire brigade in Borne Sulinowo (Woiwodschaft West Pomerania).
