Over the 30 years of its existence, the unit more than once became the best among the fire and rescue units of the Far East, and throughout the country.
The specialized fire and rescue unit employs firefighters, rescuers, divers and dog handlers. In addition, there is a service for radiation, chemical and biological protection, an unmanned aerial system. The main difference between the unit is that, in addition to extinguishing fires, firefighters-rescuers carry out rescue operations in transport, at water bodies, participate in the elimination of natural and man-made emergencies.
Many rescuers are licensed to work in the mountains, on high-rise buildings and objects, and also have the right to land from helicopters. Many of the employees are freelance divers who are authorized to work up to a depth of 20 meters.
