According to the Decree of the Administration of the Lipetsk Region dated 03 March 2022 No. of children’s recreation areas and their rehabilitation, gardening or gardening areas subject to forest fire threats and the start of the fire season in the Lipetsk region in 2022 “, from 11 April 2022, the start of the fire season in the Lipetsk region has been.
The fire-fighting season is the time of year from the moment the snow melts in the forest until the onset of stable rainy autumn weather or the formation of snow cover. Overall, the fire season in the Lipetsk region lasts from April to November. May-August is considered the most dangerous fire period.
In the context of compliance with fire safety measures during the fire-fighting period, it is necessary:
– do not set fire to dry grass, as the wind can spread the fire, which in a few seconds will move to neighboring bushes and tree bark.
– Do not leave lime matches or cigarette butts that burn slowly.
The main culprit of forest fires is man – his negligence when using forest fires during work and leisure. Most fires are caused by agricultural burns, burning garbage, picnic areas, picking mushrooms and berries, while hunting, from an abandoned match, a lime cigarette. During the hunter’s shot, the rod that flies out of the gun begins to burn silently, setting fire to dry grass. You can often see how full the forest is with bottles and broken glasses. In sunny weather, these fragments focus the sun’s rays like incendiary lenses. A completely extinguished fire in the forest causes great catastrophes afterwards.
So, if a fire is found anywhere, you should immediately call the fire department or the unified dispatch service by calling “112” and report where the fire was located. The next step is to take care of your own safety. If the fire is small, you can try to extinguish it yourself by pouring water or covering it with soil.
If it is impossible to eliminate the flame, you should try to leave the dangerous area, proceeding to the road, the clearing, the edge of the forest, the tank.
After the snow melts in the settlements, an unsightly image opens up: last year’s withered grass, rubbish on the sidewalks and on the grass, rotten last year’s foliage.
Apart from the aesthetic unattractiveness of this type, there is also a risk of fire from the garbage.
After drying, the grass can be ignited by an unextinguished cigarette butt or by a spark from a vehicle. Paper, greasy rags, broken glass are also dangerous.
To minimize the risk of fire, community clean-ups are carried out, and employees of institutions and companies based in the area are involved. The responsibility for the settlement of the territory lies with the regional administration, the business owners and the owners of private residences. An unclean angle can cause great damage.
