Abstract

Purpose. To determine the necessary performance parameters of a trailed motorized fire pump when extinguishing peat fire based on the study of the experience of using the forces and means of the subunits of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Belarus.

Methods. Theoretical research methods (analysis, synthesis, comparison) are used in the paper.

Findings. The statistics of forest and peat fires in the Republic of Belarus for the last five years is presented. The number of fire rescue technics and personnel involved in extinguishing is determined. The analysis of the consumption of fire extinguishing agents supplied to extinguish peat fires has been carried out. The relevance of the use of a trailed motorized fire pump of increased performance in extinguishing forest and peat fires in the Republic of Belarus is substantiated.

Application field of research. The obtained research results can be used for further development of fire technology in the field of extinguishing forest and peat fires.
