A delegation of the fire and rescue service of the People's Republic of China paid an official visit to the capital of the Russian Federation to sign a memorandum of entry into the International Sport Federation of Firefighters and Rescuers. At the official reception, Director of the Executive Committee of the ISFFR - A.P. Kalinin and the head of the delegation signed an agreement on China joining the International Federation of Firefighters and Rescuers. The Chinese side noted the great importance of this event.
For the first time of this year, firefighters and rescuers of the People's Republic of China will take part in the 15th anniversary World Championship among men, and from next year a full-time performance is planned - 4 teams (men, women, boys and juniors). Executive Committee Director A.P. Kalinin expressed the positive dynamics of the ISFFR, in connection with the entry of firefighters and rescuers of the People's Republic of China.
At the end of the negotiations, the delegation visited the "Aparinki" training ground in order to familiarize themselves with the sports achievements of the Moscow city team, as well as elements of fire and rescue sports. The capital’s athletes demonstrated climbing the assault ladder through a 4-floor window, overcoming a 100-meter obstacle course, a 4x100 fire relay race with extinguishing burning liquid, as well as elements of combat deployment.
