In all branches of the DRSK, specialists began to carry out preventive measures to prepare for the fire hazardous season of 2021. According to experts' forecasts, this year the situation may be tense.

According to the press service of the DRSK, the beginning of the fire hazardous season in the Primorsky Territory may be earlier than the average long-term values. This is primarily due to the rapid melting of snow. Also, increased risks are expected in Yakutia. In general, in the Far East, the Ministry of Natural Resources predicts a fire hazard in forests above the average level.

For power engineers, both forest and steppe fires are dangerous. In order to minimize risks, power engineers carry out not only monitoring of the climatic situation, they inspect territories, buildings, and structures of power facilities for fire protection.

At the facilities of the branches of the DRSK, the availability of means for extinguishing fires, the serviceability of fire alarms and installations are checked; in some places, the restoration of access roads to external water sources is required.

Thanks to this work, power outages in the networks due to wildfires in the Amur Region, Khabarovsk and Primorsky Territories, as well as South Yakutia decreased by 2019% to the level of 18. The number of damaged wooden poles has been reduced by six times: from 24 to four.
