    Today, the relief operations continued. The teams worked on 5 sites with fire fighting, search and rescue, mountain rescue, first aid and a medical treatment as well as evacuation from dangerous sites.
    Highlights from Day 1: 28 April 2003
    Despite the usual difficulties which occur at the beginning of any exercise, the first day of Ferghana 2003 went smoothly and the teams worked well. The on-site commanders reported good experiences with the teams assigned to them, which were all very professional, knew how to operate, and performed effectively.
