Pavel Baryshev in the videoconference mode took part in a seminar – a meeting dedicated to the activities of state authorities of the regions of the Siberian Federal District (SFD) and territorial bodies of the RSChS system in the event of epidemics, natural and man-made threats.

The seminar was opened by the plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Siberian Federal District Sergey Menyailo. He noted that climate change is causing great damage to the regional economy. Thus, the damage from forest fires in the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the Irkutsk Region last year amounted to more than 7 billion rubles, and more than 3.5 billion rubles were spent on their elimination. A difficult fire situation has been observed in recent years in the forests of Tyva, Khakassia, Krasnoyarsk Territory, Irkutsk and Omsk regions. Therefore, special attention must be paid to meeting the mandatory requirements in the field of industrial safety, increasing the efficiency of the emergency prevention and response system.

In turn, Pavel Baryshev said that the EMERCOM of Russia, together with federal structures and regions, are constantly carrying out systematic and purposeful work to improve the RSChS activities in the field of protecting territories and population from natural and man-made threats, and a modern regulatory framework has been formed.

The meeting participants paid special attention to the issues of emergency prevention in the Siberian Federal District, where the main disaster risks are floods, wildfires, accidents at potentially dangerous and critical facilities. The effectiveness of work to prevent these threats entirely depends on the well-coordinated interaction of the chief federal inspectors in the regions of Siberia with the heads of executive authorities and local governments, territorial divisions of law enforcement, control and supervisory bodies.
