Nearly 20 departments and work units participated in the drill. Under the joint command of the Emergency Aid Center of the Trans-oceanic Zhoushan Bridge and the Emergency Headquarters of Chemical Accidents of Zhenhai District, they worked together with dedication. The good coordination and teamwork guaranteed the complete success of the drill.  

  This drill incorporated bold innovation and actual combat simulation, and is the first combined emergency drill organized by the Bridge Service Management Team and the management departments concerned of Zhenhai District, NIngbo since the Bridge went into trial service.

Vehicles to transport hazardous chemicals which heavily impact road traffic and transportation were purposefully included in the drill.
