MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In order to prevent accidents on the water and create a culture of safety among the population, EMERCOM employees conduct raids in the bathing areas. The inspectors pay particular attention to child safety.
In the Khabarovsk Territory, such a raid took place in all districts of the city. During the raid, the Inspectors of the State Inspection Service of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia conducted preventive conversations with the children, paying special attention to the prohibition of being on water bodies without parents. There were cases of people bathing in places where it is prohibited. The shore is not equipped for recreation. Around pieces of metal ropes, wire, concrete structures and pieces of metal reinforcement and other debris stick out of the water, which can lead to injury or even death of the bathers.
During the explanatory conversation, the inspectors announced the statistics of the death of children in water bodies, especially in unequipped places. The raid participants strongly recommended that personal safety rules on the water be followed.
And in St. Petersburg, in order to convey to citizens the awareness of the danger of carelessness in recreation on water bodies, in addition to foot raids as part of patrol groups, constant patrolling of the water area and other preventive measures, rescuers resort to more and more new forms of work.
Carrying out preventive raids directly on the beaches of the Northern capital, inspectors not only remind vacationers of the need to comply with safety rules, urge them to stop drinking alcoholic beverages, and parents – to more closely monitor their children, but also conduct master classes on first aid. Anyone can take part in them.
On a special medical dummy, they demonstrate to citizens the basic algorithm for providing first aid to drowning people and victims of heat or sunstroke. The main message is that everyone can help in such situations. Indeed, in order to bring a person back to life, it is enough to follow very simple rules, which even a child can repeat.
