From April 8 to April 13 this year, in Moscow, the Academy of Civil Protection, held refresher courses for ten employees of the Emergency Branch of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Serbia on the topic "Tactics of extinguishing forest fires."
The Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Center, the educational institutions of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia and all the employees of the Emergency Branch of the Serbian Interior Ministry are connected by historical ties of friendship of our peoples and the bonds of professional – fire rescuers!
The Academy of Civil Protection of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, one of the oldest higher education institutions of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia and almost five years of cooperation between the Emergency And Emergency Services Sectors, about 500 students from the Balkan states and about 200 from Serbia have been trained within the walls of this educational institution!
Spring has come, in Serbia the risks of forest fires have increased and, in view of this, the topic of spring courses in the AGS was the theme "Forest firefighting tactics" and the whole range of problems arising from the emergency. This is not only the practical activity of fire and rescue units in extinguishing forest fires and safety measures, but also forecasting the situation in the event of a threat and the occurrence of forest fires, skillful planning of measures to prevent and eliminate emergencies caused by forest fires.
The topic of coordinating the administrative authorities to organize the elimination of emergencies and measures to protect critical objects in populated areas and cities from the threats caused by forest fires is extremely important for the officer-leader.
A visit to the OXION information centre was useful, which showed modern means of informing the population in the threat of various emergencies and a trip to the city of Tver, where the work of one of the Main Departments of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia to eliminate landscape and forest fires was demonstrated.
As a result of the training, the group was surveyed and positive assessments were received on all issues of training organization.
The Academy of Civil Protection of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia is waiting for its friends from the emergency services of the Balkan states. The experience and knowledge of the Academy's teachers for colleagues and for the benefit of the people!
