The workshop for media representatives was conducted on October 6, 2018 in Sairme. During the event the head of Emergency Management Service of Georgia presented the new model of emergency management system along with implemented and planned reforms. Save the Children informed media representatives on how to behave before, during and after earthquake and fire. Participants were divided in groups where they discussed the theoretical and practical rules and implemented them in practice during simulation exercise. After the simulation exercise media representatives met fire-rescue team and observed the equipment.
