On February 23, we celebrate Defender of the Fatherland Day. We are honoring those who have dedicated their lives to serving the Fatherland.
For the large team of EMERCOM of Russia - firefighters and rescuers, pyrotechnicians and divers, dog handlers, pilots, doctors and mine rescuers - this holiday is especially important. Every day, employees of the Ministry carry out a difficult service in the name of protecting the population and territories from possible emergencies.
Regardless of the danger, sometimes at the cost of your life and health, you come to the aid of people in trouble. Thank you for your valor, for your hard and important work.
Despite the fact that February 23 is considered a men's holiday, I would also like to congratulate the women of the EMERCOM of Russia, who, along with men, steadfastly and with dignity carry out their service.
Dear colleagues! Please accept my sincere congratulations and wishes of good health and prosperity to you and your families.
