Firefighters will conduct a major training exercise and simulation for eight days starting Saturday, said the agency.
The Cuerpo de Bomberos will be involved in a simulation in Nicoya where they are to conduct rescues after a simulated earthquake. A camp has been set up there for 100 persons, said the agency.
Part of the training will involve rescues in collapsed structures, said an announcement.
Firefighters are coming from all over the country, the agency said.
