President Vladimir Putin said the number of emergencies in Russia remains big
“The statistics and analysis of emergencies in Russia show that their number is still big,” Putin said while visiting the Emergencies Ministry’s Civil Protection Academy on Monday. “Every year the national economy sustains considerable damage, especially from fires,” the president said, speaking at a solemn meeting on the 15th anniversary of the Emergencies Ministry. Putin mentioned several priorities. “First of all, it’s the need to make the work of all supervisory organisations more effective in the field of fire safety, safety at water facilities, and the protection of the population from emergencies,” he said. “Today your service has enough capabilities to make considerable improvements in all areas,” Putin said, adding that Russia’s position on emergency response remains unchanged: “There is no such thing as other people’s trouble”. Over the 15 years of its existence, the Emergencies Ministry has carried out more than 200,000 rescue operations in Russia and abroad. ”Most of them became an example of accurate calculation, prudent and concerted action, personal courage and heroism. Over these years the Emergencies Ministry has become a multi-functional and mobile system that is ready to effectively respond to emergencies of practically any magnitude,” Putin said. He said the creation of a single national emergency response system must be completed in 2006. “The creation of a single operational response system must be competed next year on the whole,” Putin said, speaking at a solemn meeting on the 15th anniversary of the Emergencies Ministry, held at its Civil Protection Academy on Monday. The president urged the ministry to “ensure the implementation of the task of creating the National Crisis Management Centre next year”. The ministry, which will celebrate its 15th anniversary on Tuesday, dates back to December 27, 1990 when the Russian Rescuers Corps was created. In 1991, it was reorganised into the State Committee for Civil Defence, Emergency Situations and Response. On January 10, 1994, it became a ministry. Hero of Russia, Colonel-General Sergei Shoigu has been its head since then. Putin has visited the Emergencies Ministry only once. It was on February 2, 2005 when he summoned a meeting on a devastating earthquake in Southeast Asia. The Civil Protection Academy was created on December 9, 1992. Its has 25 departments and 272 lecturers who train cadets in a variety of fields, such as public municipal administration and military-administrative governance, protection in emergencies, applied mathematics, and engineering and tactical training of civil protection forces. About 1,500 people study at the Academy, and almost another 2,000 undergo additional training at the Development Institute within the Academy. Priority is given to fundamental research and the training of researchers and lecturers. The Civil Protection Academy is not only a leading educational institution but also a major research and methodological centre that studies the protection of people and territories from emergencies. Located on the Academy’s grounds are the administrative building, classes, a sport complex, modules where cadets live, a policlinic, a cultural centre, and several auxiliary buildings.
