Military Units and Staff Protection Measures On Hot Weather
CHISINAU, June 20, 2012 — The Ministry of Defense took more measures to protect the National Army units and staff working in hot weather. The staff training activities are carried out when the air temperature is lower during the day.
According to Brigadier Gen. Igor Cutie, Commander of the Land Force Command, despite the hot weather, servicemen keep attending combat training activities which are held in the morning and afternoon. “The service members are provided with drinking water. They also have the possibility to take a cold shower, especially after making physical exercises or other campaign events. On Code Orange Alert days, soldiers make low-effort exercises. On-duty servicemen are replaced more often than in other periods of the year”, Cutie stated.
There were no cases of heatstroke or overheat recorded in the National Army so far.
