On October 1, a large-scale command post exercise was held in the Moscow region to deal with emergencies related to oil spills.

Were worked out two scenarios of emergency situations associated with oil spill and fire. On the first inlet on the Pakhra River, as a result of illegal actions of unidentified persons, the oil product pipeline was damaged and more than 6 tons of raw materials were spilled. As a result of the joint actions of the EMERCOM of Russia grouping and the responding subdivisions of PJSC Transneft, the conditional yield of the oil product was localized, the fuel was collected in temporary containers for further disposal.

The second stage of the exercise began with a conditional hard landing of a helicopter on a tank with a capacity of 10,000 m3, followed by a fire and oil spill.

At the signal of the dispatcher, the forces and means of the Moscow Regional System for the Prevention and Elimination of Emergencies (MOSChS) arrived at the site of a fictitious fire at an increased rank No. 4. A total of 115 personnel and 36 pieces of equipment. As a result of prompt joint actions, the simulated fire was eliminated completely and in the shortest possible time.
