In the pre-holiday period, the department carried out large-scale preventive work in the field of fire safety. In particular, the inspectors of the state fire control organized about 10 thousand preventive fire-prevention inspections of objects, 7 thousand practical trainings for evacuating people in the event of a fire, as well as over 12 thousand instructions and conversations with service personnel on fire safety issues and 9 thousand consultations of responsible officials on the implementation of the established fire safety requirements.

In the course of the work carried out, 2 thousand violations of fire safety requirements were identified and suppressed. Moreover, over 800 of them were eliminated promptly.

During divine services, special care should be taken when handling candles. When lighting them, make sure that the fire does not touch clothing and hair.

In temples, try to keep your distance from other parishioners. When entering the churches, pay attention to the floor plan and specify the escape routes.

In the event of a fire alarm and fire alarm system, immediately leave the prayer hall without creating panic and crowding.
