As well as rescuing two fishermen from a small boat that crashed into the tower of the dam due to smoke. The equipment purchased for the project was used. In the rescue of one of the fishermen, who had fallen into the dam, firefighters from Romania, who had undergone a first-aid course, were also involved. Rescuers from Bulgaria and Romania together carried the victim on a stretcher to the CMP ambulance.
