MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Summer is the height of the tourist season. To date, there are more than 800 groups on tourist routes, with a total number of more than 9 thousand people. Among the tourists, about 70 people are citizens of foreign countries. Since the beginning of the year, about 110 thousand people have traveled as part of registered tour groups across Russia. The largest number of tourists pass routes in the Krasnodar Territory, the Perm Territory, the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic, the Kemerovo Region and the Kamchatka Territory. And these are only tourist groups registered with the Russian Emergencies Ministry.
When going on a tourist trip, you need to understand that even experienced tourists cannot be sure that an unforeseen situation will not occur on the route. A sharp change in weather, a change in the route due to landslides and floods, sudden health problems, injuries – situations that, in the absence of prompt assistance, can lead to serious consequences for human health.
Therefore, when planning a hike, it is necessary to notify the rescue units about the route of their movement. 10 days before the start of the trip, an application is submitted through a special online form on the official websites of the territorial bodies of the EMERCOM of Russia. To do this, you can also use postal items, e-mail or phone by contacting the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia for the region where the trip is planned.
When submitting an online application for registration, the composition of the group, contact numbers, detailed information about the route, the date of departure and return, dangerous points of the route and other information are indicated. An employee of the relevant subdivision of the territorial body of the EMERCOM of Russia is obliged to process the application within one working day, and then transfer the information to the rescue subdivision in whose area of responsibility the route is planned.
