In connection with the medium and high fire hazard in the territory of Tatarstan, state forest inspectors conduct patrolling of forest areas in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of fire safety rules in forests. In particular, in the State Public Institution “Elabuzhskiy Forest District”, the patrolling is carried out jointly with young foresters from the school forestry. Thus, the children learn to take care of nature and the rules of behavior in the forest in a fire-hazardous season. More than 600 forest patrols are conducted by forestry officers in Tatarstan every week. State forest inspectors conduct joint raids with the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the RT of the district. They inspect forest territories within the framework of the execution of the Cabinet of Ministers Order on limiting the stay of the population in the forest and entry of vehicles into forest areas.
