Balkans |  Tell the Turks of Western Thrace that they live in the earthquake zone

The Western Thracian Turks in the Greek Rescue Team told that they live in the earthquake zone in Turkey.

After the earthquakes that occurred in Kahramanmaraş in Turkey on February 6, two Western Thracian Turks, who were part of the professional search and rescue teams that went to the area from Greece, told AA reporter about their experience in the earthquake zone.

Hakan Bozali, who has been working as a volunteer in the search and rescue team for about two years, said that he wanted to be part of the team that will go to Turkey from the first moment.

He stated that they went to Adiyaman with a team of about 30 people, and Bozali stated that they were in coordination with the Turkish authorities from the first moment.

Working in coordination with the Presidency of Disaster and Emergency Management (AFAD), Bozali explained, “We had a search and rescue dog and a thermal camera with us. When necessary, we scanned with a thermal camera. When necessary, we participated in studies with the dog. We stayed 7 days in total. We worked on 13 Wreck. We rescued three people with Disaster and Emergency Management and other teams.” He said.

Bozali said that this is the first time he has faced such a catastrophe and that it is difficult to deal with.

Hakan Mehmet Ali, a graduate of Çanakkale 18 Mart Emergency and Disaster Management University, said that they work with AFAD and that the search and rescue dog and thermal camera helped them a lot.

Muhammad Ali said: “You are almost racing against time there. Looking for people in an empty building means shortening the life of a living person in the wreckage of another. In this respect, our dog was very useful.” He said.

Muhammad Ali said that he anticipates what he will face because he is a graduate of disaster management, “We are human beings beyond our professional character. We also had moments when we were very emotional. I saw families waiting at the wreckage. It is a feeling that is difficult to describe.” He said.

Previously, three Turks from Western Thrace had gone to the earthquake zone to support relief efforts.

Bilcihan Serifoglu, a graduate of Konya Selcuk University, who lives in Ketinlik village of Xanthi, and Hüseyin Dangala and Burhan Karaday, students of the Theology Faculty of Marmara University, announced that they went to the earthquake zones with the idea of ​​”paying their allegiance to Turkey.”
