Dmitry Skoropadsky, a student at the Institute of Forestry, Mining and Construction Sciences of PetrSU, became a member of the volunteer team that exterminated forest fires in the Pryazhinsky District.
Karelia is engulfed in forest fires. In this difficult period for the republic, many of its inhabitants do not stand aside, but are actively involved in the fight against the natural disaster.
For example, Dmitry Skoropadsky, a student of the Institute of State Humanities and Information Technologies, became a member of a volunteer team consisting of representatives of the search squad “In the footsteps of the dead planes” of the Union of Search Units of Karelia, which extinguished forest fires in the Pryazhinsky region.
For several days, volunteers prevented the spread of the fire by flooding it with water from pull-up fire hoses and firemen’s backpacks, filling it with sand. Mostly it was manual work in extreme conditions of smoke and high temperatures.
The team completed the task assigned to it and did not allow the fire to go beyond the designated square. But the situation in Karelia as a whole is still tense, so there remains a need to mobilize all available resources in order to defend our forests and secure settlements,
– said Dmitry.
