MINSK, 17 January (BelTA) – Belarusian rescue workers are studying the international experience of protecting nuclear power plants, BelTA learned from Belarusian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Vashchenko on 17 January.

A fire station was one of the first structures built as part of the Belarusian nuclear power plant's compound. “The fire station has been built, it is fully manned and fitted with modern equipment and vehicles. Department heads are studying the experience of protecting similar installations in other countries,” said the Emergencies Minister. Government oversight agencies are training their personnel, too.

Vladimir Vashchenko remarked that joint practical exercises of the Belarusian and Russian emergencies ministries will be continued in order to practice responding to emergencies at nuclear power plants. In particular, such training exercises have been held at the Smolensk nuclear power plant.
