An emergency team of Vanadzor LOB was sent to localize and eliminate the consequences of the accident, equipped with relevant equipment, fixtures, materials and personal protection equipment.

During the training, the emergency team performed all the necessary actions related to the recovery work, in accordance with the Accident Response Action Plan (ARAP), observing the safety requirements.
