2020 has become a jubilee year for EMERCOM of Russia. For 30 years, the department has rescued more than 2.5 million people, provided assistance to more than 5 million people, eliminated more than 31 thousand emergencies of various kinds. More than 6.9 million fires have been extinguished, more than 1.7 million explosive objects have been neutralized, more than 50 thousand specialists have been trained in the universities of the Russian Emergencies Ministry.

The department’s specialists carried out over 500 humanitarian operations abroad, delivered humanitarian cargo to more than 100 countries of the world, carried out over 120 air operations for the sanitary evacuation of seriously ill Russian citizens from foreign countries.

The Russian Emergencies Ministry is equipped with 79 aircraft, including 22 aircraft and 57 helicopters, as well as 1,820 unmanned aerial systems.

To carry out the tasks of providing assistance to the population and protecting the territory of the Russian Federation, the entire spectrum of forces and means of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia is involved – these are rescue military formations, the federal fire service, search and rescue formations, paramilitary mine rescue units and the state inspection for small vessels. On round-the-clock duty there are forces and means involved in the elimination of local or local emergencies.

The EMERCOM system of Russia has created and is developing the Arctic centers of the EMERCOM of Russia, robotic, airborne and diving units. There are also 11 rescue military units with a total number of about 7 thousand personnel and 2.1 thousand units of equipment and 11 search and rescue and emergency rescue units. In total – 5 thousand personnel.

In 2020, units of the Russian Emergencies Ministry carried out sanitary and anti-epidemiological measures throughout the country. On the territory of 80 constituent entities of the Russian Federation, special treatment was carried out – more than 5.7 thousand medical and 7.9 thousand educational institutions, 22 thousand social service facilities, 45.4 thousand buildings and structures of transport infrastructure, 10 thousand km of roads and 228 thousand units of equipment.

Thanks to low-cost and preventive measures, no loss of life was allowed in 2020, the damage to the federal budget was reduced. The funds that were used to compensate for damage from showers and typhoons in the Far Eastern Federal District turned out to be minimal. Until this year, they annually amounted to 6-8 billion rubles annually.

In 2020, a comprehensive work was carried out to digitize the department. A number of mobile services for the RSChS system have been developed and implemented to prevent large-scale emergencies: Atlas of Natural Risks, Thermal Points, MES Security. Work in this direction will continue.
