MOSCOW, June 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov suggested using new technologies, including drones, for monitoring water rescue operations.
Puchkov visited the search and rescue station Levoberezhnaya in north Moscow where modern technologies for water rescue operations were shown to him.
These included drones that monitor the situation on rivers and lakes in real time mode and transmit images directly to the duty officer of the State Inspectorate for Small Craft.
“It is necessary to use the modern technologies we have seen here today, including the drones, everywhere because every second counts when it comes to rescuing people from water,” the minister said.
