MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In 2020, EMERCOM of Russia celebrates the 30th anniversary of its creation. In honor of the significant date, the personnel of the Vologda territorial fire and rescue garrison made a parachute jump and the flag of the emergency department.
An-2 aircraft, with a team of 3 rescuers on board, took off from the airfield of the Vologda aero club. The representatives of the regional EMERCOM of Russia, who raised to a height of 3000 m, left the car and spent about 30 seconds in free fall with the flag of the emergency department unfurled, after which they landed at the starting point.
Even paratroopers cannot jump without preparation. Training is a mandatory step before starting real jumps. The firefighters were told about the basics of parachuting. On training harness, future parachutists worked out the actions after jumping out of the plane. On the trampolines, they learned how to place their feet correctly when landing. At the end of the theoretical training, the EMERCOM employees were told about actions in special cases.
