Fire-tactical exercises took place on the southern coast of Crimea. The Karasan Palace was “burning”
On the southern coast of Crimea, on the territory of one of the hotel complexes in Partenit, fire-tactical exercises were held. Their goal is to test the combat readiness of units of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations to extinguish fires at sanatorium and resort infrastructure facilities, as well as to develop an algorithm for interaction between the fire extinguishing operational headquarters and the administration of the facility.
According to the tactical plan, the fire occurred on the first floor of the medical and health complex located in the Karasan Palace. The cause of the fire was a violation of the rules for operating electrical equipment. By the time the first units of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations arrived, the fire area exceeded one hundred square meters. The premises were heavily smoked. Two people on the second floor were cut off from escape routes. During reconnaissance, the GDZS unit found conditionally injured people. They were evacuated via a three-legged ladder through a window and handed over to emergency medical personnel.— said the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia in the Republic of Crimea.
It took only an hour and a half to extinguish the fire and rescue the victims. The exercise participants successfully completed all the introductory instructions and met the deadline. From the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, 31 personnel and 9 pieces of equipment were involved in them.
Interestingly, the rescue training facility is located on the territory of the ancient Utes-Karasan park, which is a monument to the landscape gardening culture of the 19th century, where more than 220 species of exotic plants from around the world grow. Fire safety of such facilities is one of the priorities of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations.
