Emergency preparedness training at U.S. Embassy Wassenaar, April 26, 2018

As part of routine emergency preparedness planning, the U.S. Embassy will be training with counterparts from the Dutch emergency services today, April 26.

Dutch emergency vehicles and equipment will be present at the U.S. Embassy to ensure all sides know how to best work together in the event of an emergency.

U.S. Embassies around the world routinely work with first responders from host nations on emergency planning, just as foreign embassies in Washington do with their U.S. counterparts.

The Embassy would like to express its thanks to the Dutch emergency services and our new neighbors in Wassenaar.
