On June 23, in Krasnoyarsk, the head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia Alexander Kurenkov held a working meeting with the governor of the region Alexander Uss on the forest fire situation in the region.

A grouping of forces and means consisting of more than 14 thousand people and more than 2 thousand units (including aviation departments) are involved to respond to fires and emergencies.

The Minister got acquainted with the work of the Krasnoyarsk Integrated Aviation Rescue Center of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, which is armed with 17 units of aviation equipment. Be-200 amphibious aircraft, Mi-26 and Mi-8 helicopters make it possible to effectively extinguish natural fires, including those in remote areas of the region.

“Violations of fire safety requirements by citizens, especially during the fire season, remain the main causes of wildfires. It is necessary to strengthen preventive work, explaining to citizens the rules of conduct and talking about the consequences of their violations, about increased fines,” Alexander Kurenkov emphasized. This year, 1,590 administrative offense cases have already been initiated in the region for such violations.

At the Siberian Fire and Rescue Academy of the State Fire Service of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, stationed in the closed city of Zheleznogorsk, Alexander Kurenkov got acquainted with scientific and technical developments. After that, in a solemn atmosphere, he presented the special titles of “Lieutenant of the Internal Service” to graduates of the higher schools.

“Several years ago, each of you decided to connect your life with the Russian Emergencies Ministry. It was a conscious decision for someone and a rush of the soul was for others. But all subsequent years you have proved that you deserve to be called firefighters,” the Minister addressed the graduates.
