The photos are from a training exercise by Cruzrojistas (Red Cross workers) on Saturday, July 20, 2019, in adverse road and terrain conditions common during emergencies.

The exercise is for strengthening the capabilities of its first responders with the implementation of the Curso de Manejo de Vehículos de Emergencia #4×4 (Emergency Vehicle Management Course).

Twenty-five Cruzrojistas took part in the two-day event that included a series of tests in swampy terrain, mountains, and difficult access roads.

During the tests, the Cruzrojistas had to make use of their knowledge and tools such as chains, winches, hydraulic jacks, shovels, etc.
