In the Tver region, at the Migalovo airfield, training sessions were held on the containment of a fuel spill and ignition.

According to the plan of the exercise, during the refueling of the aircraft, an aviation fuel spill occurred, the servicemen had to work out practical actions to eliminate a fire at a military facility.

The regiment’s fire brigade, after a timely arrival, used a combined fire extinguishing unit UKTP “Purga-5” to localize flammable and combustible liquids, which is capable of producing 21,000 l / min of medium expansion foam.

Also, the training was attended by units of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in the Tver region as part of the emergency rescue service.

Simultaneously with the actions taken to eliminate the fuel spill, the fuselage and wing of the aircraft were cooled with foam and a foaming agent solution to prevent fire. At the initial stage of extinguishing, cooling was carried out from fire monitors.
