MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
October 9 is a professional holiday of special units in the system of the federal fire service of the state fire service of the EMERCOM of Russia, which provide reliable fire protection of especially important state facilities.
To date, the system of special units includes 50 special departments, 1 forensic institution, 308 special fire and rescue units, which ensure the safety of 314 especially important state facilities. More than 2,400 employees are on duty every day.
In the post-war period, the units were reliable fire protection for the country’s defense complex. They pioneered the field of fire suppression and fire prevention. Based on my personal experience, in close cooperation with scientific institutions of ministries and departments, instructions and rules were created on the tactics of extinguishing fires and conducting preventive work, organizing the activities of fire departments.
The combination of deep knowledge with practical experience allows the personnel of the Special Fire Department to successfully fulfill the assigned duties and carry out professional activities for the benefit of our country. Every day, special units ensure the implementation of the most important state programs on the development of the military-industrial and nuclear power-industrial complexes, space activities, the aviation, medical, pharmaceutical industries and a number of others by protected objects. Among the priority areas, it is necessary to note the activities to ensure fire safety at the Akademik Lomonosov floating nuclear power plant, the first Russian cosmodrome Vostochny, and the Baikonur complex. Also, advanced technologies are being developed and introduced in the field of prevention and elimination of natural and man-made emergencies, ensuring fire safety.
At present, the personnel of special units are successfully solving the assigned tasks, multiplying the glorious combat traditions and carefully preserving the invaluable experience of service veterans.
