UrBC, Yekaterinburg, October 10, 2019. EVRAZ Holding’s Nizhniy Tagil Integrated Metallurgical Plant (EVRAZ NTMK) coordinated a series of civil defense drills that involved several hundred employees of the plant and its daughter enterprises, EVRAZ Holding Ural’s Corporate Communications Center reports.

The company workers spent two days drilling emergency routines and evacuation operations, accommodating people in shelters, and distributing individual protection gear.

‘The largest-scale part of the drills took place at the plant’s heat and power plant. According to the emergency simulation script, there was a leak and gas inflammation at the boiler section of Station 2, with several people unable to leave the building. The plant’s rescue and firefighting teams arrived at the scene following the alarm,’ the company says.

‘The rescue and emergency units had the opportunity to practice teamwork. I believe they managed. All of our teams proved fast, skilled, able to coordinate their actions, and capable of confidently managing all emergencies,’ says head of the plant’s Civil Defense & Emergency Department Yuri Vlasov.

The second day of the drills was dedicated to the plant’s medical units. The units comprise workers from the plant’s various divisions who are trained to provide first aid on a nuclear/chemical contamination site.

Medical units from the plant’s Central Lab won the first and third prize in the drills; silver went to the Beam-Rolling Department’s team.
