Far Eastern rescuers will have a drones department

In the Far Eastern regional search and rescue team EMERCOM of Russia, a department of unmanned aerial vehicles has appeared, reports SI Rigma.info.

Today, rescuers talked about the lessons and innovations that last year's large-scale flood brought. It is planned that the new detachment will receive three drones: two - helicopter type, one - aircraft. The new department will employ five employees of the DVRPSO.

- When large areas were flooded with water, communications were cut off, it was difficult to conduct reconnaissance. We realized that it was necessary to use the latest technologies, - said Georgy Iordanov, head of the FERPSO EMERCOM of Russia. - Therefore, the detachment has created a department of unmanned aerial vehicles. Now it is staffed with specialists, they are being regulated. Today we have agreed on all the issues of using unmanned aerial vehicles, in September-October we expect the equipment to arrive. After it arrives, people will be sent to the manufacturer for training.

The manufacturer of new devices is not yet known. As clarified in the press service of the department, the devices will be of domestic production from the western regions of the country.

After the flood, a field medical center began to operate in the detachment, in other words, a hospital. He was introduced to the rescue staff on April 1 this year. It consists of 23 people.

“A field medical center is able to redeploy as soon as possible to any subject of the country, including abroad, and carry out all types of medical work, including delivery,” the head of the detachment noted. - All the latest equipment was transferred back in December. This year we purchased additional equipment for more than 10 million rubles. The hospital has already taken part in two exercises.

Fortunately, in real conditions his help has not come in handy yet. The element also showed the need to increase the percentage of the reactive component in the DWARPS, it was increased by 85 percent.

This was done not only at the expense of rescuers, but also at the expense of certain categories of people - doctors, signalmen, drivers.

- During this period, the percentage of the reacting component in the detachment increased. Any organization consists of responsive units and support units. We had increased the reactive component to 85 percent. Additional training was carried out with people, doctors, signalers and drivers certified and assigned them the status of rescuers, - said George Iordanov.

Also, the head of the Far Eastern rescue squad noted that last year's flood showed the need for decentralization of equipment purchases.

- Different subjects have their own specifics, I think it will be wrong for everyone to supply the same types of floating funds. Already this year, the ministry switched to decentralizing purchases. We purchased some of the equipment on our own, based on what we needed. Next year, decentralization will deepen, which will make it possible to buy equipment that is most adapted to our conditions, ”said Georgy Iordanov.
