           At the meeting, which was held with the participation of Head of the Civil Defense Department of the Ministry of Emergency Situations for Khatai district, lieutenant-colonel Rafail Musayev, measures for ensuring emergency preparedness were discussed.


           Welcoming the guest, BHOS Vice-Rector for General Affairs Rashad Hasanov noted that the evacuation plan and emergency regulations are as important for the BHOS as for any other organization.
