“At the level of the Ministry of Interior, a series of measures were ordered to protect citizens and prevent serious incidents during the short holiday occasioned by the Day of the Union of the Romanian Principalities. The leadership of the Ministry ordered that starting today [Friday – editor’s note] an increased presence of the law enforcement forces would be needed in the street, to discourage the commission of illegal acts and to ensure rapid intervention in case of risk situations for citizens, as well as the flow of road traffic,” said Monica Dajbog at the headquarters of the Ministry of Interior.
According to her, during this short holiday there will be more than 130 events in which approximately 90,000 people will participate.
Traffic police officers will act with 285 radar devices, but also with devices that signal the consumption of alcohol or other prohibited substances at the wheel.
At the same time, 12 aircraft of the General Aviation Inspectorate will be available to carry out joint missions with the other operative structures of the MAI and to perform SMURD missions, mainly for the transport of patients in serious condition.
For their part, approximately 4,900 firefighters will be ready to help citizens in dangerous situations, including providing them with emergency medical assistance, and tourists who choose to spend these days in the mountains and encounter problems can call on the more than 190 gendarmes (mountaineering) who will be on duty these days, says Monica Dajbog, according to Agerpres.
