Employees of the Main Directorate of EMERCOM of Russia in the Tyumen Region held fire-fighting exercises in the Solnechny shopping and entertainment center. As part of the school of operational skills, employees of the city fire and rescue garrison worked out actions to extinguish a fire at an object with a massive stay of people.

According to the legend of the exercise, a fire started on the fourth floor of the mall due to a short circuit. After the alarm was sounded, the administration of the center carried out the evacuation of personnel and visitors. The arriving responding units of the emergency department began to eliminate the fire and search for possible victims. Outside the mall, firefighters deployed an articulated lift and a ladder to conditionally cool the roof, thus facilitating the work of fire departments inside the facility and reducing the risk of further spread of fire.

Ambulance crews, traffic police crews and rescuers of the Tyumen Regional Emergency Response Service were also involved in the training.

During the exercise, the skills of the operational commanding staff of the fire service were tested, methods of rescuing people in a fire and tactical actions to eliminate it were worked out.
