TBILISI, September 23 (Itar-Tass) — The consequence management field exercise Georgia-2012 under the aegis of NATO began near the capital of Tbilisi, the Georgian Interior Ministry said on Sunday.
The exercise takes place within the framework of cooperation of the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council.
More than 1,000 members of Georgia’s emergencies department and civilian and military teams from NATO and partner countries will take part.
The scenario for the exercise is a severe earthquake hitting the outskirts of Tbilisi, which results in high numbers of victims and heavy damage to infrastructure. Moreover, chemical and radioactive spills will occur.
The exercise is aimed at practicing capabilities of partner nations in liquidating the disaster and improving coordination of actions, the ministry said.
Sixty observers from 13 countries will monitor the drills.
The Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) conducts such an exercise for the fourteenth time. Georgia hosts this exercise on its territory for the first time.
Last June an international conference in the run up to the consequence management exercise took place in Tbilisi, where representatives of NATO and partner countries participated.
