MOSCOW, April 30 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Emergency Situations Ministry is planning to provide housing in full to employees of the fire-fighting service in 2013, State Secretary, Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov said on Monday.
When the fire-fighting service was subordinated to the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry, at least 5,750 families of fire-fighters waited turn in getting housing. “Now there are 2,000 families of fire-fighters who wait turn in housing. In 2012-2013 we are planning to provide housing to all employees of the fire-fighting service,” Puchkov said.
He said the ministry had worked out a draft law on social welfare for employees of the Federal Fire-fighting Service. Now it is submitted to the State Duma. We believe that the law will come into effect on January 1, 2013,” the deputy minister stressed.
He noted that the law envisaged wage hikes and monetary allowance by about 1.6 times to employees of the Federal Fire-fighting Service.
During the meeting, fire-fighters and volunteers told the deputy minister about their problems. They named the insufficient legislative base as one of the priorities. “It is necessary to simplify the procedure for joining volunteers in order to allow a person, who seeks to deal with fire prevention and the propaganda, to avoid needless obstacles,” Puchkov said.
