During the recent week (January 11 – 17) the units of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine performed interventions to prevent emergencies, ensured rapid response to accidents and consequence relief, fire-fighting, and other rescue activities.
The daily work of rescuers is primarily aimed at preventing the occurrence of various emergencies, in particular, by conducting outreach work among the population. Nevertheless, citizens are not always responsible for their own safety and the well-being of their families, which can have tragic consequences. Violation of fire safety rules, non-compliance with recommendations for proper operation of heating and furnace heating appliances, malfunction of electrical and gas equipment - the root causes of deaths in fires in the private sector.
Due to forecasted complication of weather conditions, the number of emergencies typical for this period has increased in some oblasts of Ukraine. So, from the beginning of bad weather the rescuers began to rescue vehicles from ditches and snow-covered sections of the roads.
