The seminar saw the participation of many domestic and foreign experts, scientists, and researchers as well as representatives of foreign embassies and diplomatic missions in Vietnam.
At the seminar, participants discussed issues related to non-traditional security threats which may possibly affect national security, and fire prevention and rescue work. They also evaluated the role of the Fire and Rescue Police Force in response to those security threats and exchanged experiences and approaches to respond to non-traditional security issues.
Speaking at the seminar, Deputy Minister Nguyen Van Thanh emphasized that, in order to improve their operational efficiency in the new situation, the Vietnamese Fire and Rescue Police Force should proactively work out plans in response to any possibly emergency scenarios, such as environmental crises, natural disasters, fires and explosions.
The force should also regularly carry out firefighting and rescue drills while improving the quality of their training programs for firefighters, meeting the requirements of tasks in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and effectively responding to non-traditional security issues.
