On December 15, 2018, the award event for the participants of the children’s painting competition called “Fire safety” took place. The competition was held as an initiative of the Federal state enterprise “The special administration of federal fire-fighting service No.50 of the Ministry of emergency situations of Russia”. The year 2018 in the Ministry of emergency situations of Russia was declared to be the Year of the safety culture according to the order No. 287 dated 07.07.2017 by the Ministry of emergency situations of Russia.

The employees of the enterprise are very responsible in the questions about safety precaution discipline at working places, they regularly attend safety precaution classes and exercise in emergency evacuation activities.  

Various events are held to bring up the younger generation and train for a responsive and competent way to behave in case of a fire or another dangerous situation. We asked kids to take part in the children’s painting competition called “Fire safety” and we noted that both kids and their parents were very active. All the paintings and works on this topic appeared to be different and demonstrated a very serious and responsible attitude to the fire safety issue. Some of the works may now be suggested for use as posters telling about a danger of a reckless handling with fire.  

For the event the firemen prepared a dedicated program to make kids familiar with the fire station, fire extinguishing equipment and awarded all participants with certificates and presented gifts.   

The management of EDB Fakel appreciated “The special administration of federal fire-fighting service No.50 of the Ministry of emergency situations of Russia” for their initiative in holding a remarkable competition and noted that events of this kind are very important to bring up the younger generation.
