In the meantime, against any adversity, 112 emergency service personnel attended the event.

'FIRST' IN TURKEY
Mayor Osman Zolan has assessed the fire drill and resque exercises. ‘This event is a first in Turkey. Fires and disasters happen not only in daytime, but at night too. So we decided to realize the exercise at night. Denizli Fire Brigade has the same devices and equipment as in European Fire Departments. But there is no limit for our goals. We are continuing to work to make it better. Our Fire Brigade regularly implements exercises against fire, earthquake, drowning and accidents. A fact of life, that we should prepare ourselves to all kinds of any adversity. Denizli Municipality's Fire Brigade showed us that it's ready for duty’.
