It was like a trip to Disneyland for emergency services representatives from the poorest country in Europe when Greenville Fire-Rescue officers and N.C. National Guard soldiers welcomed their partners from Moldova to the city last week for a tour of the department's facilities and equipment.

Col. Anatol Viniciuc, chief of Moldova's national fire service, Capt. Galina Turcan, chief of the biological, chemical and radiological hazards team, and Capt. Tudor Popa, head of the national search and rescue team Tuesday reviewed every piece of equipment aboard the semi-trailer used by the state's regional Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) team.
