Military involvement in flood relief

31
In the Far East, there is an emergency situation associated with the overflow of rivers. In some flood regions, the water level gradually decreases, in others, on the contrary, it grows. However, despite all these changes, the overall situation remains complex and requires appropriate action. So, as of September 10 morning, according to official data of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, 7 settlements remain flooded in the Amur Region. They are flooded 266 residential buildings with a population of 1369 people. In addition, 26,5 kilometers of highways and 69 bridges are under water. In the Jewish Autonomous Region, 20 settlements - 1175 houses and 3830 people suffer from floods. Almost 130 kilometers of roads and 7 bridges are flooded. The worst situation persists in the Khabarovsk Territory, where the spilled Amur River flooded 74 settlements. Because of this, 2760 houses, which were home to more than 29 thousand people, were flooded partially or completely. A message was broken on road sections with a total length of 66 km and on four road bridges.


Such a flood scale led to the fact that not only employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, but also military personnel were involved in the evacuation, accommodation and assistance to the local population. A total of six regions of the Far Eastern Federal District employ more than 46 thousand people and almost 7,5 thousand units of equipment. At the same time, only 11,5 thousand people and 1621 units of equipment participate in the works from the Ministry of Emergency Situations. Much of the work was undertaken by the Ministry of Defense. The servicemen of the Eastern Military District take an active part in the evacuation and accommodation of the victims, in creating the necessary infrastructure, etc.

It should be noted that the number of military personnel and army equipment involved in helping the population is constantly increasing. So, on September 9, according to the press service of the Ministry of Defense, the military transport aviation made 29 sorties in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, delivered there 46 units of equipment, personnel and various cargoes. Army aviation on the same day transported more than 20 tons of cargo. September 4, it became known that two heavy Mi-26 helicopters will participate in cargo transportation. These rotorcraft from the Central Military District aviation were temporarily deployed to the Far East.

Military involvement in flood reliefThe situation in Komsomolsk-on-Amur is gradually deteriorating, and the Ministry of Defense has to take appropriate measures in this connection. Currently, there are active shipments of equipment and people to this city. Thus, in the first days of September, a dozen and a half units of heavy machinery were transferred to Komsomolsk-on-Amur: dump trucks, bulldozers, excavators, etc. Later, several more vehicles of this destination were delivered to the city. The military personnel of the Eastern Military District set up tent camps for evacuated people, food outlets, water purification systems, medical facilities, etc. necessary objects.

To date, military personnel in the Amur Region, the Jewish Autonomous Region, and the Khabarovsk Territory have deployed 9 catering centers capable of fully providing up to 5 thousand people. Catering facilities accept victims currently living in tent camps. Army units use the KP-130 field kitchens and the PAK-200 mobile car kitchens for cooking. In addition, field bakeries operate at the points of supply. To date, these complexes in total have baked about one and a half tons of bread.

Since the flood is a great stress for the local population, psychological aid points have been operating in disaster areas for several days. Psychologists from the armed forces are receiving in Khabarovsk (two points), Komsomolsk-on-Amur and several villages in the Jewish Autonomous Region. In addition to providing psychological assistance to the affected population, psychologists work with military personnel. As of September 5, psychologists have taken about one thousand people.

The water has already left some of the affected areas, which is why troops of radiation, chemical and biological protection work there. These units are involved in the restoration of some elements of the infrastructure. Specialists of the RCBZ troops disinfect the areas that were under water, process the wells and help the local population in clearing farms.

Another way to prevent possible mass diseases is to monitor the sanitary-epidemiological situation and vaccination. Over a dozen mobile laboratory groups visit dozens of places every day and collect a large number of water samples. Samples are transferred to specialists of the 736-th Main State Sanitary-Epidemiological Surveillance of the Ministry of Defense, working in several villages of the affected regions. Vaccination of the population and the participants is also being carried out. Currently, about 25 thousand people have been vaccinated against hepatitis A only.

Due to the flooding of a large number of roads, various boats became the main means of transportation in the affected areas. Currently, in the Amur and Jewish Autonomous Regions, as well as in the Khabarovsk Territory, a large number of towing and motor boats BMK-130 and BMK-460, as well as floating conveyors PTS-2 operate. Such vehicles now account for a significant part of freight and passenger traffic. So, in one day 9 of September, boats and floating conveyors transported 1180 people, 262 ground vehicles and 1985 tons of various cargoes. In total, 18 transporters PTS-2 and 39 boats of two types operate in the flood areas.

The military personnel of the Eastern Military District during the rescue operation not only evacuated residents, but also helped to build a temporary transport infrastructure. To date, the Ministry of Defense in the affected areas has built 3 bridges, 4 ferry-bridge ferries and 18 ferries, which use floating conveyors. Since the beginning of the operation, the military took out more than 20 thousand people, more than 4 thousand vehicles and a little less than 12 thousand tons of various cargoes from the flooded areas.

Currently, the military of the Eastern Military District are involved in all activities related to the elimination of the consequences of flooding and assistance to the victims. Forecasts for the near future do not allow us to hope for an early completion of the flood. Therefore, in the coming days or weeks, soldiers and officers will have to continue to provide assistance to the victims. In addition, one should not forget that the first frosts will soon begin, and this will only aggravate the situation in the affected regions. Thus, the operation to assist the local population may take several weeks or even months. The main problem in this situation is the uncontrollable nature of natural processes. While it is impossible to say exactly when the water will leave all the affected settlements, which greatly complicates the planning of further work. However, there is no choice. EMERCOM officers and military personnel of the Eastern Military District continue to work at the site of an emergency situation and help the victims.

    In connection with the active participation of the Ministry of Defense in the fight against natural disasters, a reasonable question arises - what for us in general the Ministry of Emergency Situations, when the military extinguishes forest fires, and they deal with the flood?

        Yes, but what about the Ministry of Emergencies for local emergencies? That is, the plane to analyze the rubble after the earthquake in some sort of Zimbabwe is the Ministry of Emergency Situations. Are global regional emergencies military? Such logic? I repeat then the model of civil defense is necessary as in the case of the Union and there is no need to fence the garden ...

          the power of the Ministry of Emergencies is not enough yet in Komsomolsk-on-Amur there are unique factories that produce military aircraft; there is no need to share our need to work and save.

      The same question has arisen recently. It was GO emergency, then it was neutered and received by the Ministry of Emergencies, while the Ministry of Emergencies was not able to cope with large-scale elements, such as on the Amur. Or am I wrong? I see only the military in the reports on the elimination and counteraction of the elements. So can return as it was under the Union? After all, in fact, it turns out so?

        That's what is on the Internet!
        On Thursday, the head of the National Center for Crisis Management in the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Stepanov, stated that more than XNUMX million people were being formed to carry out emergency recovery work in flood-affected areas. 200 mobile teams, their total number will be more than 10 thousand people.

        New forces are thrown into the disaster zone

        Emergencies Ministry grouping in flooded areas of the Far East has already reached 40 thousand people, but the ministry decided to pull in additional forces from other regions. The department explains that restructuring where necessary is not possible by regrouping alone - a difficult situation has developed everywhere, including the Amur Region, although the peak of the flood there has already passed.

      He constantly criticized the Ministry of Emergencies, but now in Komsomolsk-on-Amur they bear the greatest load. At the most dangerous site at night, the Ministry of Emergencies, guys from the Ivanovo School. Few of them have attracted the army. PTSKs at night with sandbags float only the Ministry of Emergencies. It seems that in case of emergency, the Ministry of Emergencies is more organized. Maybe because the motivation is different from the army. Army - conscripts are mainly involved. Soldiers in the wings: pour sandbags, etc. .. So that the Ministry of Emergencies and the army in our case complement each other. (I saw it myself) http://vk.com/album19625443_179383108

    It’s just that earlier, if the memory of the Civil Defense Department doesn’t fail me, it was part of the Moscow Region, and now the Moscow Region is separate, and the Ministry of Emergencies is separate. I know that in Russia it is planned to merge the Ministry of Emergencies and the Defense Ministry! Thanks to the soldiers for helping. Emergencies Ministry forces are not enough to counter the elements.

    And the fact that under the USSR they still thought with their heads, and were ready for such an emergency, we need to remember the current leadership and restore the destroyed system.

    The Ministry of Emergencies is also not omnipotent to embrace everything, they are simply not enough. Besides the military, volunteers and various civic organizations help them. Or, in your opinion, let everyone watch the Ministry of Emergency Situations fighting with water according to their purpose. This photo is at the entrance to Komsomolsk-na Amur I did 4.09

    And today is 11.09 at 12.00 Khabarovsk vr. Entrance to Komsomolsk-on-Amur, the water is approaching the road almost right up to the road. And there are lots of such sections around the road. 347 km of the Komsomolsk-Khabarovsk highway are filled with dams above the road along the roadsides. The water reaches the rail , nearby is the railway station Sovgavan-Komsomolsk, Novy Mir village also goes under water. This is just what I personally observe, and they also build dams around the airport because water can come through the fields either from the side of Molodezhka or the New World. They also work on the other side of the city. It is certainly easy to control the flood on TV and resent not the ability of the Ministry of Emergencies to defeat this alone. Therefore, they are with them military and civilian organizations with their equipment and people.

      Support! good
      Hold on there!

      That klimpopov :
      Yes, but what about the Ministry of Emergencies for local emergencies? That is, the plane to analyze the rubble after the earthquake in some sort of Zimbabwe is the Ministry of Emergency Situations. Are global regional emergencies military? Such logic?


      This is how the Ministry of Emergencies works:
      At 10.15 (Moscow time) the plane IL-76 EMERCOM of Russia took off from the air. Ramenskoye in the air. Khabarovsk city. On board the aircraft are 14 tons of medicines.

      Two Il-76 planes took off at 21.53 and 22.30 (Moscow time) from the Ramenskoye airfield near Moscow to Khabarovsk — they were carrying a tent camp to accommodate 125 people.

      "At 23.45 (Moscow time) on August 22, an IL-76 plane of the Russian Emergencies Ministry flew to the airport of Khabarovsk with 135 rescuers on board," the report said.

      At 01.08 Moscow time on August 23, the same plane flew to Khabarovsk with humanitarian aid, equipment and rescue equipment.

      On Thursday, the head of the National Center for Crisis Management in the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Stepanov, stated that more than 200 mobile teams will be formed to carry out emergency repairs in flood-affected areas, their total number will be more than 10 thousand people.

        Whom and where did I blame? And it could cope on its own, the military would not be attracted! Our flood was much less (probably in 20 times) in scale, and then only the military helped out. So don't blame me! am

        Ministry of Emergency Situations - a sinecure, gnawing away from the country not a weak budget. You, apparently, never had communication with this gang. For me, all of them, except for firefighters, would receive double salaries and stay at home. A loss for the country would be less.
        PS I know what I'm talking about, if that.

    ---------------------------

    I'm out of this nonsense. From Moscow to haul tents for 125 people to Khabarovsk? And everything else? The apotheosis of senility and cut.

    If there are no tents and medicines anywhere closer than Moscow, then is it really impossible to attach a freight car to the Moscow-Vladivostok train and load all of the above?
    I’m jerking, of course.
    The day before yesterday I handed over a two-day salary to help.
