Every year divisions of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in the Nikolaev area more than 4 thousand times leave on various incidents, accidents, fires. Every day on a signal "alarm" rescuers hurry to the aid. At this moment every minute is expensive and therefore at a wheel of "a steel horse" there has to be always a skilled driver, the expert.
Skill of drivers pozharno - saving cars can envy only. To operate the multiton car which has been fully completed by ognetushashchy substances and a survival equipment, quite difficult, especially streets of our city. The fighting division has to arrive to each call no more than in 5 minutes therefore the privilege on the road is provided to rescuers. In real life all differently. Not each of participants of traffic provides this advantage, not everyone realizes that rescuers have every second on the account on which human life sometimes depends.
