The entire set of exercises by gas and smoke defenders was performed “blindly”, simulating conditions of zero visibility.
The issues of communication of links in conditions of zero visibility were also worked out; c also the work of gas and smoke defenders when using 4 or more links simultaneously, the work of the headquarters and the head of the fire extinguishing directly.
And in Krasnoyarsk, firefighters conducted tactical firefighting exercises to eliminate the fire in the building of the Sports Palace. I. Yarygin. The units of the gas and smoke protection service checked for the presence of the remaining people in the room. In parallel, people were evacuated. The personnel of the sports facility and the arrived employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations evacuated more than 200 people.
