MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
One of the rather serious problems of fire fighters in the elimination of fires and ignitions in multi-storey residential buildings is the complexity of the passage and installation of fire fighting equipment in courtyards. As a rule, inside the courtyard driveways, residents are forced to use their own vehicles without taking into account the movement of large-sized special equipment.
Employees of the Chelyabinsk fire and rescue garrison, concerned about this problem, decided to raid the courtyards of high-rise residential buildings.
In the event of a fire, first of all, the employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations must remove the residents from the danger zone, at the same time work begins to eliminate the combustion. It should be noted that fire and rescue equipment arrives at the place of call in a matter of minutes. But getting to the source of fire is often very problematic.
One of the points of checking the possibility of maneuvering firefighters’ special equipment was the courtyard of the residential complex on Lesoparkova Street. High-rise apartment buildings with a fenced area have become inaccessible due to cars parked along all the carriageways of the yard. Already at the first entrance to a high-rise building, a fire tanker (it should be noted, not the largest of those in service) could not make a turn. And the possibility of the car’s articulated lift, designed to rescue people from the upper floors of buildings, ended at the first turn to residential buildings: dense parking of cars prevented special equipment. It is difficult to imagine how firefighters would solve this problem in conditions of a real threat to people …
Representatives of the developer company, as well as employees of the management company, took part in the event together with employees of the Ministry of Emergencies. All together had to find ways to solve this problem.
What this citizen and others like him will do in the event of a real fire remains a mystery associated with the life and health of people. Apparently, such people are ready to take risks. Of course, they prefer not to think about responsibility and hide behind a mass of excuses. Only the result of these excuses is most often seen by firefighters, and the result is sad.
In the meantime, the employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations can only hope for the conscientiousness of residents and their own professionalism.
