In the Communist party offer to transfer emergency functions to extinguish all fires, including forest, said the Deputy from the Communist party Michael Shchapov.

On Wednesday, the state Duma held a governmental hour with participation of the head EMERCOM of Russia Vladimir Puchkov.

«Every year reduced the number of fires annually reduced the number of deaths in fires. But there is one systemic problem: what concerns forest fires — MOE is responsible only if they affect the activities of human settlements. Outside the settlements is responsible a number of departments. And this sometimes causes confusion and irresponsibility. And as a result we see an increase in combustible forest land,» said Shchapov reporters.

In his opinion, the fire fighting should be centralized.

«In the framework of the government hour we will recommend you to transfer all functions to extinguish all fires, emergencies,» — said the Deputy.

He also noted that, in General, the results of the activities of the MOE can be seen as positive. «230 thousand people a year are saved by the firemen. This is a huge figure,» he added.
