My condolences to the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. I wish success for the rescuers in their selfless efforts. Тhe Municipality of Burgas sent me on a mission with the support of the Bourgas and Karnobat Fire Department to share know-how that can benefit our SAR society and the Balkan Cities Network.

Here is our discussion with Mr. Remzi Albayarak, Head of Istanbul Fire Department, regarding high-rescue in Turkey, Dubai, Greece and Bulgaria. It was an amazing experience and thanks for the great and warm hospitality provided by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and Istanbul Fire Department for the “FIREFIGHING and SEARCH & RESCUE TECHNICUES” held in the Istanbul Fire Training Center. I am now waiting for any moment for the call back to go to assist in Urban SAR with the next shift of Bulgarian rescuers.

Моите съболезнования на жертвите на земетресението в Турция и Сирия. Пожелавам успех на спасителите в техните безкористни усилия. Ето нашата дискусия с г-н Ремзи Албаярак, ръководител на пожарната служба в Истанбул, относно височинно, спасителните операции в Турция, Дубай, Гърция и България. Беше невероятно изживяване и благодаря за съдействието на Община Бургас, и страхотното и топло гостоприемство от Столичната община на Истанбул и Пожарната служба на Истанбул за „ПОЖАРНА ТЕХНИКА и ТЕХНИКИ ЗА ТЪРСЕНЕ И СПАСЯВАНЕ“, проведено в Истанбулския център за обучение по пожарна безопасност. Сега чакам всеки момент да ми се обадят, за да отида да помогна в следващата смяна български спасители.

There has been a discussion for Fire Rescue for air Fire Rescue as in Dubai. Because of the situation that you have the beach nearby and there’s different type of helicopters that must be used for sea rescue. So rip. The helicopters or the fixed wings, let’s say, that are used in order to extinguish the. Fires on the sea and in the forest, the fire in the forest are completely different than the ones that we need and we use in the fire Brigade services responsible for the residential area, the helicopters that we use in. Let’s say residential area has to have a water cannon just in front of it so that the you can. Use the water with the pressure of about maybe 50 or 60 meters, and it has a container or reservoir, let’s say consisting of three or 4 tons. Yeah, so that they can just send it gradually, step-by-step, maybe 1/4 or 1/2. The third law of the reservoir, so that they are completely different. Or in this situation like the one we had in Bulgaria where we need to get the Russian SU-26 because it’s a large airplane, it could get more, yes, more water than the bamboo system as you mentioned for the helicopter. So have you had such a big fire, especially in the summer when you need large amount of water? Well, actually if it’s a huge fire and we need more than one helicopter or more than one. Let’s say a blaze in Turkey. The Minister of forestry rent, if I’m not mistaken, 29. Helicopters for extinguishing the fire, fires and about 15. Flames. So they’re totally sure enough in order to interview to the fires. Thank you. You’re welcome. How about high rise rescue? Like high rise buildings where you might need a helicopter or people training. High angle rescue on ropes hiring. Yeah. Like for example in Dubai there’s new receive. They had this big fire that to 20 seconds flamed out on the horizon that areas. The lot of the doesn’t reach and there’s a need for helicopter because for the helicopter it’s a big challenge because of the high reference, because 200 meters you can see the buildings, but three. And largely it’s kind of difficult.

Well ,actually we have no idea about it, but that’s.  I mean those things that are going to be kept in mind is done by the experts. So we just rent them and we say you know the rules, you carry out the mission. In the frame of in the terms of those rules, very smart, yeah.
