On November 18, in Armavir, near the 30th fire and rescue unit of the 1st fire and rescue squad, the opening of the “Alley of fire fighters” took place. At the entrance to the Alley, you can read the words: “The time is peaceful, but we are always soldiers in a war declared on fire.”
Opening the event, Oleg Volynkin, Head of the Main Directorate of the Russian Emergencies Ministry for the Krasnodar Territory, said: “Today we are opening the Firemen Alley. I am sure it will be a landmark place for the popularization of our service, a place of attraction for young people and a gathering place for our veterans. I would like to express special words of gratitude to the head of the Armavir administration and the deputy corps for their help and support in creating such a place. And to all the personnel who took part in the creation of this monument, from me personally – a big human “thank you”.
The initiators of the creation of the monument were the Council of Veterans of the Armavir Fire and Rescue Garrison and the head of the 1st PSO Anushavan Abramyants. A fire-fighting tanker AC-30 was installed on the Alley, which was used to deliver personnel to the place of the fire. We also placed information stands telling about the history of the fire brigade of Russia.
The head of Armavir, Andrei Kharchenko, noted: “When we proposed to create an Alley of Fire-fighters, we supported this proposal. Employees of the fire and rescue team carry out their service every day and perform it with dignity. I am sure that this place will become a decoration of the city ”.
Within the framework of the event, the most distinguished firefighters and rescuers, veterans, as well as representatives of the city administration were awarded with departmental awards of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia.
“For us, for everyone who is in any way connected with firefighting, this Alley will become a place where we can all gather, where we can tell our children about our work,” said Chief of the 1st PSO Anushavan Abramyants.
