The shortage of personnel and uniforms of the fire service is one of the key problems identified during a large-scale internal audit of the Ministry of emergency situations, held from 28 may to 15 June at the request of the new Minister Yevgeny Senicheva.

“The number of fighting crew at the fire truck is two or three people instead of six,” said Yatsunenko, refuting the “false opinion about a fairly prosperous situation with staffing of on-duty guard — about 90%.” In fact, the shortage of personnel fire protection is 23 of 100 people, a shortage of active-duty guard — 10 800. After the reduction by 50% of state of the State fire supervision on each of the 9800 inspectors have over a thousand objects.
