Students from MSFS went to Summer Camp in Cherkassy (Ukraine).

Autor: Cadets of III company who took part in the camp in Cherkassy

Cadets from the Main School of Fire Service for many years are taking part in different international workshops in various countries. This time students from MSFS went to Cherkassy (Ukraine).

From 27.06-03.07.2016 nine cadets from III company took part in the summer camp organized by the Cherkassy Institute of Fire Safety named after Heroes of Chornobyl of National University of Civil Defense of Ukraine. They had an opportunity to share their experience with Ukrainian colleagues and to read up their equipment. Friends from Ukraine showed MSFS’ students different methods of actions which are not common in Poland as well as their own original solutions. Worth noting is an extensive activity of chairs and departments which introduce their own amendments to standards and guidelines and create their own equipment. Differences in performance were significant therefore MSFS’ cadets listened carefully and got familiarized with firefighting model in Ukraine.

During the stay activities by the Dnipro River and on the Cherkassy training ground were held. The main topics during those workshops were: water, chemical and technical rescue, the use of carry-on firefighting equipment, extinguishing fires on buildings and ships. Students had an occasion to see how the search and rescue group is working together with specially trained dogs. Cadets had an opportunity to confront this activities with those which they know from trainings in Poland. The most popular turned out to be the specialist group of firefighting sappers.

It is worth stressing efficient organization and effort from the hosts. They were cared about every element. All the information and changes to the schedule were given on a regular basis. Despite the general opinion that Ukraine is low developed country than West you can safely say that the differences are not so great. Besides, amazing is the heart and dedication put to pamper the stay of Polish delegation.

During the stay students visited all the main Institute’s sites. Extreme experience did classrooms and labs where using simple methods different solutions were improved as well as to make studying easier  which is important while increasing knowledge.

Besides providing training ground exercises which were very dynamic the delegation visited important and interesting places like: city of Chyryhyn, museum of Bohdan Khmelnytsky and sightseeing in Sofiyivsky Park in the city of Uman.

This trip brought incredible dose of experience and impressions. For people who were there for the first time it was for sure unforgettable experience. Carrying out activities in a different way than in the State Fire Service required both patience and creativity.

Students hope that cooperation with our eastern partner still will be fruitful and will bring many benefits and excursion to the Cherkassy would be a signal for further exchange of experience.
