The governmental committee on prevention and elimination of emergency situations is meeting in the Emergencies Ministry chaired by its minister Sergei Shoigu. The major issue on the agenda of the meeting is fire security measures at educational establishments in Russia on the eve of a new academic year. At present, the state fire control department of the Emergencies Ministry examined fire security measures at 99,000 educational establishments that makes 86 percent of their total number, a representative of the information department of the Emergencies Ministry said. The results of inspections exposed shortcomings in the fire security measures at 46,000 schools. “Upon requests of the state fire control department about 3,000 documents with the inspection results were submitted in courts in order to rule a possible suspension on the activities of educational establishments and 1,229 materials on suspending the use of some premises,” the information department emphasized. Meanwhile, fire inspectors issued about 77,000 instructions to eliminate the exposed fire security violations. Meanwhile, 39,000 officials and 8,000 juridical persons were brought to administrative responsibility. Meanwhile, the Emergencies Ministry noted that the fire security level increased in educational establishments. The number of fires at schools has shrunk 2.7 times for the last five years. “All in all, 2,638 fires were registered for this period of time and damages of over 64 million roubles were inflicted. Sixty-two people died, and another 237 people were injured in these incidents,” the ministry’s information department remarked. Meanwhile, 302 fires broke out at educational establishments in 2006 that is about 20 percent less that for the same period in 2005. No fire victims sustained in schools last year as a result of tightening the fire security measures. As many as 133 fires were registered at educational establishments for the first half of this year that is about 15 percent less than for the same period in 2006. Experts of the Emergencies Ministry found out that about 42 percent of fires at schools are caused by the careless handling with fire. Twenty-two percent of fires broke out over the violations of the operating rules of electric appliances.
