“As an annual event, NEMA in collaboration with Federal Road Safety Corps and other critical stakeholders carried out the 2020 Operation Eagle Eye, Search and Rescue (SAR) operation during the Yuletide/New year season to monitor the high ways and provide immediate SAR operations for travellers and crash victims. 

“In all of these, it is important to note that flood, boat mishaps, fire, chemical, air crash drill, basic first aid trainings were carried out. In the area of relief intervention, the agency under the supervision of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs (FMHADM&SD) flagged off and distributed palliatives to the COVID-19 pandemic frontline states.”
