Today (April 4th) is the International Day of Mine Awareness and Mine Action Assistance.
📌Its purpose is to raise awareness of the threat posed by explosive objects to people’s health and life. For many years, rescuers have actively talked about explosive objects and their danger. Despite numerous mine risk awareness campaigns, warning messages keep coming in with news of new victims. It is a painful reminder that such measures will never be enough.
No one, even in their wildest dreams, could have imagined that there would be a war, and after the enemy’s invasion of Ukraine and the racist shelling of our peaceful cities with various weapons, a significant amount of ammunition, of various types and calibers, would remain on the streets, posing a direct threat to people.
Today, rescuers of the State Emergency Service actively conduct preventive measures in all corners of our country, in educational institutions with children, labor groups and simply on the streets of cities to warn of possible danger and teach people the correct behavior when detecting explosive objects.
And now, when a full-scale war is going on in our country, every person should understand that previously acquired knowledge and observance of personal safety can save the most valuable – life!
