On June 11th 2015, Dubrovnik and Neretva Region and Firefighting Association Konavle, in collaboration with the National Directorate for Protection and Rescue and other emergency services from the Dubrovnik region, held the firefighing exercise Gruda 2015 at the elementary school Gruda. The exercise was organized as part of the project HOLISTIC which integral part is the organization of events that raise the level of awareness of fire prevention for inhabitants of different age groups including children of primary school age.

In addition to child training for proper treatment in the event of fire or explosion and implementation of the evacuation exercise, Gruda 2015 also served as additional training of fire brigades in fire fighting and evacuation of injured people.

The exercise involved 23 firefighters, 3 nurses, 6 vehicles and around sixty pupils from the elementary school Gruda.

Members of professional and volunteer fire brigades answered to numerous questions asked by children. Representatives of the Dubrovnik and Neretva Region briefly presented project HOLISTIC.
