In the combined-arms formation of the Eastern Military District (VVO), deployed in the Republic of Buryatia, a tactical fire-fighting exercise was conducted with the personnel of the fire departments of the Ulan-Ude garrison of the Eastern Military District on the basis of a storage warehouse for material and technical means of fuels and lubricants.
According to the concept of the exercise, the calculations simulated the situation for extinguishing various fire hazardous facilities, in particular, warehouses with fuels and lubricants, where in the event of a fire a spill of oil products with a high burning rate was possible, and a fleet of weapons and military equipment.
With fire brigades, actions were worked out upon receiving the command “Fire alarm”, moving to the area of a conditional fire, standards for the prompt exit of equipment from the park, deployment of fire engines, laying of trunk and working lines were fulfilled.
More than 30 fire brigades were involved in the fire-tactical exercise, over 50 units of special equipment were involved.

On the territory of the Republic of Buryatia, from October to the end of November, there is an increased fire hazard period, including due to strong windy weather. This leads to a rapid increase in the area of fires and complicates their elimination.
