MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Employees of a specialized fire and rescue unit for extinguishing large fires conducted a night training at a gas station in the Visaitovsky district of Grozny.
The fire-fighting exercise was carried out in order to improve the skills of the personnel. The documents for preliminary planning of actions to extinguish the fire were worked out and the operational and tactical features of the object were studied.
According to legend, the fire occurred while pumping liquefied petroleum gas from a tanker truck to a stationary area.
The first actions were taken by the plant personnel, who followed the algorithm of actions in case of a fire. For them, participation in a fire-tactical lesson became an opportunity to practice their knowledge in practice.
The task of the employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations who arrived at the scene was to eliminate the “fire” and prevent the transfer of fire to the building and other facilities of the gas station. At the same time, the work was carried out in heat-reflecting suits designed to protect the personnel of fire departments from increased thermal effects.
During the event, firefighters checked the access roads to the facility, equipment with fire-fighting equipment and serviceability of fire-fighting water supply sources.
