MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
On July 18, Russia celebrates the Day of Establishment of State Fire Supervision Bodies. On this day, 94 years ago, the All-Russian Central Executive Committee and the Council of People’s Commissars signed the “Regulations on the State Fire Supervision Bodies in the RSFSR”.
The establishment of the state fire supervision (hereinafter referred to as the GPN) was preceded by a centuries-old period of accumulation of experience in the field of fire safety. The GPN continues to improve and is again on the verge of reform, significantly changing its appearance, turning into a modern open structure.
Today, the state fire supervision of the EMERCOM of Russia is a modern warning system aimed at preventing risks and causing harm to legally protected values. The work carried out by the GPN bodies has made it possible to achieve significant results in the field of fire prevention.
Today, the department controls 9 thousand settlements, 1.5 thousand children’s health camps, 5 thousand gardening associations, as well as 2 thousand economic, transport, and energy facilities exposed to the threat of forest fires.
As part of the State Fire Service of the EMERCOM of Russia, almost 13 thousand specialists throughout the country work to prevent fires, and also implement effective measures to protect the population and material assets from fire.
In the first half of 2020, the GPN authorities carried out more than 90 thousand inspections, during which more than 485 thousand violations of fire safety requirements were revealed.
The State Fire Inspection is developing and improving, introducing legislative initiatives in the field of ensuring fire safety and mastering modern technologies.
The digital environment for the implementation and provision of public services is rapidly developing. Preventive work is a priority for the new surveillance system. To date, the regulation of control and supervisory measures is based on the principles of proportionality of interference in the activities of controlled persons and management of the risks of causing harm to legally protected values.
