On September 18, 2022, Blue Shield Georgia participated in an inter-agency field exercise “Racha – 2022” organised by the National Guard of the Ministry of Defence of Georgia and the Emergency Management Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. As part of the training, a natural disaster scenario was played out, the Blue Shield team coordinated the evacuation of movable cultural heritage from a simulated archaeological site located in Oni Municipality, Racha-Lechkhumi Region and the Regional Museum located in Oni. With the help of National Guard reservists’ teams and members of the General Mazniashvili Youth Legion, emergency documentation, packing and transportation of exhibits from the simulated field laboratory and the simulated storage of the Oni Museum took place to a safe shelter.
