Conference on "Historical experience of Spitak earthquake" to be held  in Yerevan

Conference on "Historical experience of Spitak earthquake" to be held  in Yerevan

ArmInfo.On December 6, the Russian-Armenian  Center for Humanitarian Response, together with the All-Russian  Research Institute for Civil Defense and Emergencies of the Ministry  of Emergencies of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Emergency  Situations of Armenia and the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia, will  organize an international scientific-practical conference:   "Historical experience of the Spitak earthquake - modern technologies  of seismic safety".

The scientific-practical conference is timed to the thirty-three  years anniversary of the Spitak tragedy. Over the years, the work on  the prevention, monitoring and assessment of the consequences of  earthquakes has led to the accumulation of significant experience  that should be in demand and useful to the participants.

The conference and planned events will allow exchanging views and  practical knowledge, choosing joint approaches, getting acquainted  with the best practices in the field of protecting the population and  territories from earthquakes and their consequences. Participants of  various organizations from more than eight countries will discuss  such topics as: automated monitoring systems, assistance to victims,  minimization of secondary consequences of earthquakes, preparedness  of civilians and much more.

In the practical plan of events, there is a joint work of specialists  from the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia and the Ministry of  Emergencies of Armenia with the "Struna"  mobile diagnostic complex  to assess the seismic resistance of buildings and structures. A  unique diagnostic complex allows you to quickly and efficiently  assess the stability of almost any building, to assess the risks from  an earthquake in advance.  And also with its help it is possible to  determine seismic risks at the construction site of the future  building.

After the conference, the participants will get acquainted with the  work opportunities, material, technical and training base of the  Russian-Armenian Center for Humanitarian Response, opened in 2016 on  the territory of the Republic of Armenia.

The relevance and urgency of the Center's activities is confirmed by  the participation of its forces and means in rescue operations,  extinguishing forest fires, providing humanitarian assistance both in  Armenia and in neighboring regions. A large number of training  programs, conferences and other international events.  The guests  will be shown international demonstration exercises to eliminate the  consequences of the earthquake, using the rescuers and means of the  Russian Emergencies Ministry, the Armenian Emergencies Ministry, the  Russian-Armenian Center for Humanitarian Response, the  Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Center, the Armenian Red Cross Society  as well as rescuers from the Islamic Republic of Iran.  At the end of  the program, on December 7, the guests will visit the memorial to the  victims of the earthquake in Gyumri.
