May 1, 1933, to the crews of the fire service was included first in the USSR Department of gas and smoke protective service.

Before 1900 firefighters went to fight with fire, with virtually no reliable protection. As respiratory protection from the acrid smoke often they used a wet mitten clutched in the teeth or closed mouth and nose with a wet cloth, which, of course, did not save them from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Currently the link GDZS have a full suit of armour for protection against smoke, gas and other corrosive substances. Part GDZS included flight commander and several vasodilatation, depending on the situation and the orders of the head of extinguishing the fire.

Not every firefighter in the first year of service can become vasodilatation, for it requires special training.

Then every 3 years (for Junior officers) and every 5 years (for middle and senior officers) is necessary to confirm physical readiness and mental stability to perform duties of getdemodata. ⠀

EMERCOM of Russia congratulates gas and smoke protective service fire protection!
