The exercise starts at 9 am and will involve the participation of traffic and rescue institutions. The objective is to train and capacitate teams to work together efficiently in possible occurrences of this complexity.

In the simulation, the tanker truck will be transporting diesel and will collide with a van and three other passenger vehicles, causing an oil leak and leaving a total of 15 victims, including two fatalities, three serious, two moderate, and eight mild.

The participants in the drill will be students from the Nursing courses at the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS), UCDB, and also Unigran.

The victims will be attended to by ambulances from CCR MSVia, in conjunction with rescue vehicles from the Fire Department, SAMU, and the Military Police helicopter.

The CCR MS Via concessionaire, responsible for the administration of BR-163, will provide an inspection route, tow trucks for light and heavy vehicles, and a tanker truck.
