MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Currently, in connection with the stabilization of the situation with fires in the Republic of Mari El, a redistribution of forces and means is being carried out to strengthen the general grouping involved in extinguishing wildfires in the Republic of Mordovia and the Nizhny Novgorod region, where there are two hotbeds of wildfires.
In the extinguishing area, an increase in the number of personnel and equipment is being carried out at the expense of the arriving airmobile groups of the Russian Emergencies Ministry of the Central and Volga Federal Districts. Extinguishing is complicated by the high temperature and strong water. The helicopter Mi-8 EMERCOM of Russia is involved, 9 discharges were made with a total volume of 27 tons of water. Also, units of the Noginsk Rescue Center of the EMERCOM of Russia with the Shkval pumping and hose complex arrived at the site. The uniqueness of this equipment lies in its performance, water supply is up to 400 liters per second at a distance of several kilometers from the video source to the fire. The work is carried out around the clock. Airmobile groups of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, volunteers, as well as the forces and means of the RSChS continue to work on extinguishing in the most difficult areas.
Ground groups and unmanned aerial vehicles are used to monitor the forest fire situation. In total, more than 1,850 people and about 330 pieces of equipment were involved in extinguishing the fire.
