On October 20, Russian military signalmen celebrate their professional holiday every year.

Currently, the basis of the communication system of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia is made up of stationary and mobile communication centers operating in each constituent entity of the Russian Federation.

At present, the EMERCOM signalmen give priority to the digitalization of systems. Advanced Russian information and telecommunication technologies are widely used in the development of digital infrastructure.

The situation related to the coronavirus pandemic has once again proved the relevance and importance of the work of communications workers. In the context of restrictive measures aimed at preventing the spread of Covid-19, the effective work of a number of specialists of the department was organized remotely using video conferencing.

At present, the Russian Emergencies Ministry coordinates the work on the completion of the creation of the emergency services call system by the regions at a single number 112. In addition, in all regions, work has already been completed on the organization of notification using digital television and radio broadcasting. This allows you to replace the content of all channels in the multiplex at the same time, and not just one, as in analogue broadcasting. Interaction with operators of mobile radiotelephone communication has been organized to provide SMS notification.

The communication system of EMERCOM of Russia is constantly updated with new developments. In the near future, the specialists will receive field sets of communication equipment in a protected version, digital VHF radio stations, automatic telephone exchanges and operational communication consoles.

Today the department is moving towards unification of mechanisms and approaches to the creation, operation and development of information technologies in the EMERCOM of Russia.
