Employees of Transneft Upper Volga have become winners of annual competitions among voluntary fire brigades (VFBs) and teams in the Mari El Republic. The event took place at the Olimp stadium in the village of Medvedevo.

The Main Office of the EMERCOM of Russia in the Republic of Mari El organised this competition with the support of the Mari El Republican Branch of the All-Russia Voluntary Fire Society and the Office of the State Fire Service in the Republic.

The purpose of the event was to determine the level of professionalism of the VFBs, the promotion of voluntary fire protection, as well as the improvement of knowledge and skills in the field of fire safety.

The participants of voluntary fire brigades and teams, which consisted of three or two people, had to ensure combat deployment, put on equipment, deploy a hose line, switch on the pump of a fire truck or a motor pump, provide for water supply and hit the target with a stream of water. The results were evaluated by a panel of judges, which took into account compliance with instructions and rules, as well as the time spent on tasks.
