UrBC, Yekaterinburg, February 5, 2019. EVRAZ Holding’s Nizhniy Tagil Metallurgical Plant (NTMK) received three awards for its efforts in the civil defense, emergency prevention, and fire safety sector, EVRAZ Holding Ural reports.

The plant got awarded Russia’s Ministry of Emergencies’ Sverdlovsk Region division’s special certificate for the Best Training/Resource Base. The Nizhniy Tagil-based plant received the award for maintaining its protection facilities, employee training, and overall civil defense and emergency prevention work.
