In Transbaikalia, preventive work to prevent fires began

The first preventive measures to prepare for the fire hazard season began in the Trans-Baikal Territory. New DT-75 tractors with bulldozer equipment and Belarus-892 wheeled tractors prepare soil and plow mineralized strips around settlements and young forest plantings. These measures should prevent the transition of possible steppe fires.

“New tractors are involved in laying mineralized strips. The work is done in a shorter period of time, ”said Boykov Alexey, head of the logistics department of KSAU Zabaykalsleskhoz, about the progress of work. He added that tractors can also be used to extinguish forest and steppe fires. At the moment, new tractors are operating in all areas of Transbaikalia.

Earlier it was reported that the Trans-Baikal Territory got additional subsidy from the federal budget for extinguishing forest fires. The amount of allocated funds amounted to 93 million rubles.
