Today, the results of the activities of the units of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia and the territorial subsystem of the RSChS of the Ural Federal District for 2021 and the definition of tasks for 2022 took place. The meeting was chaired by the Deputy Minister of EMERCOM of Russia Anatoly Suprunovsky via videoconferencing.

Vladimir Yakushev, Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Ural Federal District, opened the meeting to sum up the results of 2021.

Over the past year, the consequences of the 21st emergency situation have been eliminated in the Urals. Thanks to a set of preventive measures, it was possible to minimize their consequences. At the same time, dry and windy weather contributed to an increase in the number of natural fires – compared to the previous year, their number almost doubled. Extinguishing was hampered by the inaccessibility of the terrain and natural and climatic factors.

More than 39 thousand man-made fires were extinguished. The main causes of which were careless handling of fire, violation of the rules for the installation and operation of electrical equipment and furnaces.

On a systematic basis, issues of developing local public warning systems in areas where potentially hazardous facilities are located are also being addressed. There are 90 of them on the territory of the federal district. Systematic work is also continuing to examine the state of civil defense protective structures. There are about 6,000 of them in the county.

The Deputy Head of the Russian Emergencies Ministry thanked the office of the Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Ural Federal District for their attention to security issues in the region, all the participants in the meeting for their joint work and identified priority areas of activity for 2022.

“Our activities were organized under the conditions of restrictive measures aimed at reducing the epidemiological burden. This made adjustments to the work of all government bodies, required from the leaders of various levels a non-standard approach to the implementation of managerial decisions, the inclusion of additional potential and resources in solving the tasks set,” A. Suprunovsky noted.

Among the main tasks for 2022 were the preservation of human resources, equipping responding units with modern, highly efficient technology, property and equipment, improving the regulatory framework in the field of protecting the population and territories from emergencies, taking into account modern threats, continuing the digital transformation of the entire management system of the RSChS .
