    If someone sets fire, then someone needs it. Look for who, after past fires, received permission to cut down forests or who received a plot in the reserve for the construction of castles and palaces. These crooks need combat helicopters from Nurses to ashes!

    Yes, my friend, I agree with you, although, it seems to me, this will not be enough.
    It is necessary to execute the most terrible way and hang the corpses along the roads and paths. But then go and catch the reptiles. And "monitoring" (I hate this foreign language, so let's better say in Russian: "observation") is a very useful prevention, not all fires are caused by people, let them fly ...

    And why do we have the Emergencies Ministry? I have been asking this question ever since it (the Ministry of Emergencies) invented it. Where is the cataclysm, we - the military are working, and the Ministry of Emergency Situations "deployed headquarters" with a flag and give interviews.

      As for the Ministry of Emergencies, you are right, as long as the headquarters are deployed, the situation often becomes either uncontrollable or has already ended ...
      As for the military, sometimes you are attracted. But, everyone is silent about the work of the local aviation conservation units, the ground forest service, local rescue units and city (rural) firefighters, and the work of local district headquarters coordinating all of these organizations. Due to their poverty and small size, the above organizations are not able to cover all the fires that arise, and the fire hazard situation turns into an emergency ... Then the involvement of the federal Ministry of Emergencies begins, then the military. In these conditions, all the media begin to write and show videos about the heroes from the Ministry of Emergencies and the military who came to the aid of the population ...
      In our state, the leadership will never get to the brain that preventative and timely measures (increased funding to increase the staffing force and resources on the ground and their maintenance) are much cheaper than the global attraction of forces and means from the Ministry of Emergencies and the Ministry of Defense ...

    Regarding the involvement of the MinOborona helicopters, is it interesting that they will conduct flights with aviation security specialists on board, or on their own? So also (Quote: If foci of fire or smoke are detected, the pilots will promptly bring the information to the duty shift of the territorial command center of the combined arms army of the BBO in the Trans-Baikal Territory) ...
    based on the quote it will be something like this: the crew of any of the helicopters of the Ministry of Defense will enter the area of ​​smoke, and without determining the coordinates of the ignition will transfer the area of ​​smoke to the operational center .. Then the principle of "broken phone" begins ... information passed from the operational center of the army (for sure after reports to the higher army leadership) will reach the headquarters of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, there again reports and time for decision-making (often overgrown with new details), then the information from the Ministry of Emergency Situations goes to local headquarters, avialesohans and land forest guards, which, due to their specifics, must first check the accuracy of the information (perhaps from a neighboring region smoke was blown by the wind ...), determine the exact coordinates, and then take any measures ... From the moment of receiving often inaccurate information to taking measures, a considerable time will pass during which the regional and federal authorities have all the hair on the heads of local they are pulled out due to their panic fear of fire ... And based on the described, how much excess expenditure of fundsto check information ... and money is allocated so little ...
    Everyone must do their job!!! The military fly and improve their military skills. And civilian detection services should provide normal funding for the development of timely detection of fires and the timely adoption of measures to eliminate forest fires. Attraction of military aircraft to eliminate forest fires is possible, but only as additional assistance measures for the transport of forces and assets to the workplace. Without specialists and normal coordination of work with local forces, the measures indicated in the article are practically useless.
