Deepinfar: Participate in flood prevention drills
In fact, before the press conference of the Ministry of Water Resources, Deepinfar team felt the tension in the flood control work this year. Recently, local fire rescue teams in Shandong, Shanxi, Zhejiang, Hubei, Hunan, Anhui, Sichuan, Hebei, and other provinces and cities across the country have actively carried out flood rescue drills. The Deepinfar team was invited to participate in multi-site drills to assist local organizations in further preparing for flood and water disaster rescues, responding to various disasters that may occur during the flood season, and improving the team's rapid response and emergency rescue capabilities.
On June 3, the National Defense General Union and the Shandong Provincial Defense Index held a joint emergency drill for flood prevention and rescue in 2020 in Zaozhuang City. The drill simulated working enviroment during the flood season in the area around northern Huaihe River, including local heavy rainstorms, floods and crevasses in the large and medium-sized reservoirs and downstream. In the underwater emergency search and rescue exercise. The suspected target (dummy) was searched by ROV through sonar scanning, confirmed by ROV through video, finally salved by diver salves after the position confirmation.
The deepinfar team has assisted the rescue team in rescue and salvage work many times, and can efficiently and quickly provide helpful suport.

Xiamen-Reservoir Troubleshooting Exercise
On June 11, 2020, Xiamen held a flood control emergency drill, which fully simulates the omnidirectional rescue strategy of sea, land and air integration in flood situation.
180 people from 11 units participated and more than 50 rescue equipment were unveiled. In the reservoir gate troubleshooting exercise, the diving rescue team operated “HeTun” ROV to conduct an underwater danger survey.

Key points of flood control: over-standard flood, wrecked reservoir, extraordinarily large mountain flood
The person in charge of the Ministry of Water Resources pointed out in the press conference of the National New Office that this year's flood season will focus on preventing the three major risks of excessive floods, reservoir accidents and mountain flood disasters. For the three major risks, the Ministry of Water Resources has made corresponding preventive measures:
Exceeding standard floods
Guide the local water conservancy departments to prepare and complete the exceeding standard flood defense plan for rivers and cities
Publish the list of reservoir dam safety responsible persons step by step to improve the duty performance of the responsible persons
Extraordinary mountain torrents
More than 10,000 relevant personnel were trained online in 2076 counties affected by mountain torrents, and the early warning and release mechanism was also improved.
Everyone is responsible for flood rescue
The deepinfar team has accumulated a large number of applications that fit the actual use scenarios in the fields of water conservancy, hydropower, and emergency rescue. After the drill, the team has trained the ability to cooperate with joint operations. We are willing to participate in more exercise tasks and contribute to flood prevention and rescue
