Competitions of the strongest gas and smoke defenders are held annually in the garrison of the St. Petersburg fire brigade.

Today, teams of fire and rescue units of St. Petersburg, Moscow, Leningrad, Chelyabinsk, Murmansk, Vologda, Kaluga, Kaliningrad regions, the Republic of Karelia, as well as teams from the Republic of Belarus and Serbia fought for the right to be called the strongest gas and smoke defenders.

The competition program includes two exercises:

overcoming the fire line of psychological preparation with the elimination of fluid leakage and burning of a flammable liquid by opening the opening with a circular saw;

deployment in the deck superstructure, opening the door with a circular saw, finding the conditionally injured person on the ground floor of the superstructure and evacuating him, liquidating the conditional “fire center”.

According to the results of a stubborn and spectacular struggle, the team “PSO of the Kronstadt district of St. Petersburg” became the best among the links of the GDZS.

Among the GDZS branches, the first place was taken by the PSO branch of the Primorsky District of St. Petersburg.

The winner in the international standings was the team of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia in Moscow.

Competitions like these are great training and friendly exchange of experience that never go to waste. After all, gas and smoke protection workers save dozens of human lives every day, and the employees of the gas and smoke protection service are called fire guardsmen.
