MOSCOW, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Emergencies Ministry (EMERCOM) begins the training of people with disabilities to work at the ministry's services.
The training of people with limited physical abilities will begin at all the EMERCOM institutions on September 1 to work as "112" service operators, a source of the ministry's information department told Itar-Tass.
It will be a 72-hour course.
Earlier, Minister Sergei Shoigu reported that the operator training courses were ready everywhere. "But it is an initial step. People should have possibilities for a professional advance. Do not stop at the achieved level and continue training," he said.
The candidates should be seriously selected. "It should be a normal contest. On the one hand, we must do everything to create conditions for the work, and on the other hand, we must realize what responsibility the people will have," the minister noted.
"It is not a humanitarian operation just to carry out a programme -- to take 15 people for training. It is not such a case and such a place. We need trained specialists," the minister stressed.
Shoigu this Thursday visits the ministry's Civil Defence Academy, where he will meet with a group of people with disabilities who will start training.
Twenty four people with limited physical abilities will live in the academy's territory. The premises are re-equipped for them to live and study, there are access ways, and special transport is provided.
