Attention! In the Crimea — an emergency fire danger
According to the Crimean Department for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, on September 1-3, extreme fire danger will remain in the western, southern, central, mountainous regions of Crimea and in the city of Sevastopol.
Since July 8, a special fire regime has been introduced on the territory of the entire peninsula. During this period, it is strictly forbidden to make fires and carry out fire hazardous work using open flames in forests, natural ecosystems and adjacent territories, including the intentional burning of dry vegetation and household waste. The use of open fire and making fires on agricultural lands and lands of settlements is allowed only with strict observance of fire safety requirements., — the press service of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia for the Republic of Crimea notes. — In addition, homeowners and gardeners need to keep their yard and surrounding area clear of dry grass and combustible debris in a timely manner. At the same time, in the territories of settlements and summer cottages it is forbidden to arrange dumps of combustible waste, store containers with flammable and combustible liquids, as well as cylinders with compressed and liquefied gas in open areas and in courtyards. Each residential building should have a water tank or a fire extinguisher, and driveways leading to garden plots should always be driveable.
Persons guilty of violating fire safety rules, depending on the nature of the violation and their consequences, bear disciplinary, administrative or criminal liability.
We draw the attention of citizens to the fact that fines from 10 to 800 thousand rubles are provided for violation of these requirements.
In case of emergencies, you must call: «101» and «112» — a single telephone number for firefighters and rescuers; (3652) 55-09-04 — hotline of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia for the Republic of Crimea
