In the autumn-winter period, due to unfavorable weather conditions on highways, the number of road accidents and the risk of congestion increase. To organize the priority life support of drivers and passengers in emergency situations, mobile heating points will be deployed on highways.

In the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, readiness, equipment and operability of mobile heating points are being checked. During snowfalls and severe cold weather, they will be deployed on federal highways, mainly on potentially dangerous road sections, as well as in places remote from infrastructure facilities. Drivers and passengers will be able to keep warm and wait out the bad weather in a safe place.

So, in the Main Directorate of EMERCOM of Russia in the Kostroma Region, at the moment, four mobile heating points have been created in readiness for response.

Each mobile point includes 2 tents with equipped places for eating and sleeping places, the ability to charge a mobile phone, drink hot tea, and receive medical and psychological assistance. There is also a mobile field kitchen, a generator, stoves with a supply of firewood for several days, and thermal diesel guns.

Inspection of mobile heating points in fire and rescue garrisons showed that all heating points are equipped in accordance with the requirements and are ready for use as intended.

In the Sverdlovsk Region, EMERCOM of Russia is ready to deploy up to 38 mobile heating points, which, in the event of an emergency, will be promptly installed on the highways.

The mobile heating station is deployed in tents or special modules, designed mainly to create the necessary conditions for people who are in a difficult situation on the road. Rescuers need no more than 4 hours to deploy a mobile point in the emergency zone. This time is required to arrive at the scene of the incident, deploy, install the equipment and warm up to a comfortable temperature.

In turn, in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, rescuers and equipment are being trained to respond quickly to difficult weather conditions and possible risks in the winter.

So, in the Orenburg region, a review of the readiness of the forces and means of the territorial subsystem of the RSChS to eliminate the consequences of the passage of the autumn-winter period was held.

“The availability and serviceability of rescue equipment, equipment, excellent training of people – all this helps to perform the most important rescue tasks, and also allows you to minimize risks. In winter, we must promptly and fully respond to emergencies in the event of snow drifts, traffic jams in settlements and on federal highways, “said Ruslan Mutagarov, head of the 9th fire and rescue squad of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia in the Orenburg Region.

In difficult weather conditions, the rescuers of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, rushing to help people, have to overcome difficulties themselves. But for them this is a routine job, and timely help to people is their main task.
