On May 22, the Natural History of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands Lecture Series offered participants the opportunity to hear a fire forest expert at the Sakhalin Regional Museum.
Rinat Nigmatzyanovich Sabirov, Senior Researcher at the Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics, Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences delivered a lecture on Forest Fires on Sakhalin.
Fires are one of the worst natural disasters that exist on this planet. Forest fires destroy not only the forest and animals inhabiting these areas, but also human settlements. After the fires, many residents of forests and villages are left homeless. And so far, this problem remains unresolved to this day.
Sakhalin Island, like many other regions, is familiar with forest fires. Rinat Nigmatzyanovich informed the audience about the types, causes and preconditions of forest fires to start. He told about the structure of Sakhalin forests and how fire danger can be classified according to it.
Due to the relevance of the topic of forest fires, the lecturer paid special attention to fire prevention measures.
