City rescue team rushes to help

A GROUP of disaster-rescue experts from Shanghai have rushed to rain-ravaged Henan to aid its flood relief efforts.

The members of the All-Terrain Emergency Rescue Team, based in the Pudong New Area, left yesterday at the request of Zhengzhou’s flood control and drought relief headquarters and the Condor Rescue Team in Henan’s provincial capital.

A total of 16 people — 14 experts in water rescue and two medical workers — set off to the flood front with an underwater robot, five vehicles and seven rescue boats.

Most are retired SWAT officers and special forces soldiers. The private rescue team was set up in 2018, and subsumed into Pudong’s emergency management bureau in 2020.
