The simulated situation was a fire breaking out at a wood factory in Phuc Tho district, causing a blaze and explosion inflicting light and heavy burns to nearly 30 people.

Military Hospital 105 set up an emergency team and received burned patients from the General Hospital in the district for treatment. Doctors from the military hospital immediately gave first aid to those patients.

The drill was a good chance for medical personnel of the participating units to practice their skills in receiving and treating burned patients.
