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.
