On October 29, in the Oktyabrsky district of the Rostov region, a new regional fire and rescue station No. 248 was opened in the village of Zaplavskaya.

The opening ceremony was attended by Deputy Governor of the Rostov Region Vadim Artyomov, Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia for the Rostov Region Alexander Degtyarev, Director of the Regional Department for Emergency Prevention and Elimination Pavel Nudgin and Head of the Oktyabrsky District Lyudmila Ovchieva.

The new PSCh will cover 4 settlements with a population of more than 15 thousand people from fire. The main criterion when choosing a construction site was the remoteness of settlements from the existing fire departments of the federal fire service and the presence in the area of ​​responsibility of an extensive network of healthcare, education and social and cultural facilities.

Those present were able to make sure that the new building of the unit is capable of meeting all modern needs. It includes a fire station for three vehicles and heated boxes to accommodate fire trucks.

Employees of the new fire station are certified to extinguish fires, including landscape ones. Very soon they will be certified for rescue and other urgent work. Accordingly, taking over on duty, they will be able not only to extinguish fires, but also to take part in the elimination of the consequences of road accidents and emergencies, both natural and man-made.

By the end of the year, three more fire stations are planned to open in the Rostov region in the Neklinovsky, Tatsinsky and Belokalitvinsky districts. Thus, the percentage of coverage of the territory by fire and rescue units will reach 82 percent.
