On January 25, Acting Head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia Alexander Chupriyan, as part of his working trip to Norilsk, held a working meeting on the development of emergency infrastructure in the Arctic zone.
During the meeting, the participants discussed issues of improving the material and technical base of the units. Thus, in the village of Dudinka, it is planned to build a facility for basing the equipment of the Arctic search and rescue squad. To ensure the safety of life in the village of Dikson, it is planned to build a prefabricated fire station. And in the settlements of Karaul and Khatanga of the Taimyr municipal district, it is planned to build fire and rescue units.
In addition to providing security by specialized units, attention will also be paid to training the population. For these purposes, it is planned to create an educational and sports multifunctional center “Safety Planet” in Krasnoyarsk.
After the meeting, a solemn opening ceremony of the fire and rescue unit in Norilsk took place. A. Chupriyan stressed the importance of the logistics of firefighters and rescuers stationed in the Arctic zone.
“The new fire station will defend socially significant facilities built according to special projects to work in the harsh conditions of the Arctic winter – a 15-story hospital with a covid hospital and a perinatal center. Here, in the fire and rescue unit located beyond the Arctic Circle, despite the difficult climatic conditions and sub-zero temperatures, employees of the Russian Emergencies Ministry will guard the safety of the inhabitants of these territories,” A. Chupriyan said.
The fire station at N42 in Norilsk, with an area of more than a thousand square meters and a staff of 42 people, was built in the developing Oganer district with a population of almost five thousand people. The Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia has put four newest fire tank trucks “Ural” Next 5557″ into service with it. For the professional training of firefighters and rescuers, an innovative class equipped in accordance with modern technologies is provided. As A. Chupriyan noted, this fire station is a “pioneer” in the renovation program of Norilsk, in particular, and the region as a whole.
At the end of the event, A. Chupriyan presented departmental awards to the participants in the liquidation of the consequences of the emergency that occurred in Taimyr in 2020. Participants in the 2021 interdepartmental exercises in the Arctic region also received awards.
