Rescue drowning take under public control

Summer comes nearer. And together with it and a beach season which at us traditionally is considered dangerous. This year to avoid a great number of death members of the oldest in Russia public organisation - OSVOD by which 140 years yesterday were executed will try.

In Russia annually sinks to 10 thousand persons. And about two thousand from them - children. (The State inspection on small size vessels) on all does not suffice inspectors GIMS. For example, on 25 kilometres of a beach in Anapa only 7 inspectors work. And businessmen were engaged in the equipment of beaches basically.

In February of this year the president of Russia has signed the Commission to heads of the higher executive powers of the government to provide together with OSVOD and the Ministry of Emergency Measures working out of regional programs on creation of public saving fasts in places of mass rest and to training of the population to swimming. However, to execute it it has appeared hardly. After disintegration of the USSR the organisation was closed and revived only in 2004. Even Main board OSVOD building has been lost. Now OSVOD has branches in 73 regions of the country where work more than 30 000 persons. The problem - to make country beaches safe and free.
