KYZYL (Republic of Tuva), April 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) opened a major emergency accommodation station for 1,125 people in the Republic of Tuva. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and incumbent Minister of Emergency Situations Sergei Shoigu have made a decision to this effect at the request of Tuva’s leader Sholban Kara-ool after a devastating earthquake in Tuva on December 27, 2011.
The emergency accommodation station included a mobile medical point and an emergency accommodation centre for 1,125 people that is equipped with beds, tents with heaters, lamps and life-supporting amenities, as well as the tents for a canteen, shower rooms and a food store.
“This emergency accommodation station is very important in the places, where the life-supporting facilities were fully destroyed as a result of the emergency situation,” the press service of the republican emergency situation service told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Meanwhile, Russian Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov, who arrived in Kyzyl, presented to the rescuers a communications system designed for satellite and telephone communications in the zones of emergency situations. The Tuva search-and-rescue team was presented with 15 KAMAZ trucks for urgent response, the transfer of material resources to various districts of the republic and the system of control in the zone of emergency situation triggered by earthquakes.
After several major earthquakes, which rocked the republic since last September, all this machinery and equipment were the most precious gifts for residents of Tuva, Sholban Kara-ool noted. Now Tuva residents have reliable shelters in case of natural disasters.
