The Romanian Undersecretary of Health, Raed Arafat, stated Wednesday at Ploiesti that the provision of first aid that the Romanian crews provide is compatible with that of many European countries. From a logistical point of view there are no problems.
â€œIn terms of equipment, I guarantee that what we feature is compatible with many European countries including the UK, so this is not a problem,â€ said Dr. Arafat.

The next competitions will be held as part of the evaluation by our colleagues and in time we will also start to send teams to participate at international competitions.
