On October 26, a fire-fighting exercise was held in Novosibirsk, in which the local fire-fighting and rescue garrison took part.
According to the plan of the exercises, one of the parked cars caught fire in the underground parking of a high-rise building. At the time of the arrival of the firefighters, dense smoke was observed inside the underground parking lot. Smoke spread to the upper floors of the building. The arriving fire fighters installed tank trucks on fire hydrants, the links of the gas and smoke protection service inspected the premises to detect possible victims and the source of fire.
In addition, additional input was worked out, which the guard on duty did not know in advance: due to the loss of communication between the fire fighting headquarters and the GDZS link, as well as the complication of the fire situation inside the parking lot.
During the fire-tactical exercise, the personnel of the involved units studied the space-planning solutions for the construction of the underground parking and the elements of the fire protection system.
Every year in the capital of Siberia and other cities, the number of high-rise residential complexes with underground parking spaces is growing. Increased attention is paid to the safety of such houses, therefore, fire departments need to regularly practice fire fighting tactics in high-rise buildings with underground parking, study its characteristics, as well as check the coordination of actions when organizing fire extinguishing and emergency rescue operations.
