Bishop Ihor in his congratulatory word stated that the elements fire, water, wind, and earth, often threaten lives and that the rescuers carry such a large responsibility. “Since great courage, ability, and skill are needed to contest with the elements, training must be rigorous and you all are duty-bound by the oath,” said the archbishop. After the general prayer, a parade of personnel and performances of students were held.
