The final of the first All-Russian competition for the title of the best link in the gas and smoke protection service of the EMERCOM of Russia has ended in the northern capital.

9 teams competed for the title of the best – GDZS units, which represented their federal districts: the Main Directorate of the EMERCOM of Russia for the city of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kirov, Voronezh, Astrakhan, Chelyabinsk regions, Primorsky Territory, the Republic of Tyva and Stavropol Territory. During the competition, the firefighters demonstrated a high level of professionalism and a close-knit team spirit.

The competition program included one theoretical task and two practical exercises. In particular, the gas and smoke defenders had to overcome the fire zone of psychological training, open the doorway, eliminate the leakage of liquid, and also find and rescue two conditional victims in an environment unsuitable for breathing, providing first aid to one of them. The gas and smoke defenders performed all practical exercises fully equipped in combat clothing and equipment.

As a result of a tense and spectacular struggle, the winner of the final of the All-Russian competition for the title of the best link in the gas and smoke protection service of the EMERCOM of Russia was the team of the Main Directorate of the EMERCOM of Russia in St. Petersburg. The second place went to representatives of the Main Directorate of the Russian Emergencies Ministry for the Primorsky Territory. The third place went to the team of the Main Directorate of the EMERCOM of Russia in the Voronezh Region.

The cup was presented to the winners personally by the Deputy Minister of the Emergency Department Ilya Denisov, who watched the course of today’s competition. He noted the importance of holding such events: “They allow to improve the level of training of fire and rescue units, exchange experience, which, of course, has a positive effect on the overall combat readiness of EMERCOM of Russia employees. Thank you all for your participation, and I hope that we will meet with you again. “

Recall that this competition was held for the first time. The place for their holding was not chosen by chance. After all, it was here, in the city on the Neva, that the gas and smoke protection service was born: on May 1, 1933, the first GDZS department in the fire brigade of our country was included in the combat crew of the Leningrad garrison of the fire brigade.
