Features of an overnight stay in summer
The summer period is characterized by relative comfort compared to the conditions of ice fishing and spending the night with severe winter time, when frosts of twenty degrees and howling snow blizzards are not uncommon. In summer, all this is not, but there are some peculiarities that also bring certain disadvantages and inconveniences.
First of all, before going fishing, you need to inquire with the appropriate authorities if a high fire hazard has been declared? In addition to a call to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, these data can be obtained in the media, namely in newspapers and on the Internet, where the main regional news is usually duplicated in online versions of newspapers. If this is not done, then in the hot summer season, when it’s time to relax on the river, fish, swim, grill kebabs, cook fish soup, you can get a substantial fine. And the positive emotions from relaxing by the water will turn into negative emotions, that is, the mood will be completely ruined. In addition, you will have to pay money for making a fire and visiting the forest in a special fire regime. If for violation of the rules of making a bonfire in the forest at normal times you can get a fine from one and a half to three thousand, then in a special period you can get fines from four to five thousand. And this is for citizens. For officials, such a walk with barbecue can cost forty thousand, and for legal entities – all half a million. In a normal period, bosses for violating fire safety rules risk getting a fine of twenty thousand, and legal entities – two hundred thousand. Rest can be cheap if you break the rules. In addition to these violations, there are many more subparagraphs, including the burning of dry grass, dead wood and other combustibles.
If, as a result of your rest and rest of officials and legal entities, a fire arises from which people and forests will suffer, then it is better not to name the amount of fines. At least for a legal entity this can cost a million rubles. In addition, criminal liability is also possible. And here we recall the forest fires in our pine forests several years ago, which arose as a result of the celebration of the birthday of our head of the republic, when firecrackers exploded in a dry forest. Then huge areas of a pine forest burned down. And with regard to criminal liability and even a fine against the president of the republic, they did not even talk. Now he is sitting in a pre-trial detention center for completely different sins – for corruption and bribes. And in our forests for many kilometers lie vast wastelands, laden with wood corpses. I saw it myself when I was in this fire and put out the forest.
Therefore, if a high fire hazard is declared, then it is better not to go into the forest. But even in the period when it is allowed to visit the forests, there are certain rules that are better not to break. You can’t make bonfires in peat bogs, in the places of logging, where there were branches and branches, as well as stacks of harvested wood. You can’t make a fire under the branches of trees, in areas with dry grass, in coniferous plantations and in burns.
It is impossible, categorically it is impossible to leave a fire not extinguished, to throw not extinguished cigarette butts, matches, glass bottles and jars, which under certain conditions become lenses and set fire to the forest.
If there is no high fire hazard, then it is best to make a fire away from the forest, on a hillock and glade, having previously removed moss and sticks at the site of the fire, scraped the place best to the ground or sand. On the river, we usually make a bonfire on a sand spit, previously singeing dry grass and in the sand, if any. That is, the fireplace should be free around combustible materials for three to five meters. And you should not make a big fire in the summer.
It is very effective to use a gas stove with a ceramic burner to heat the tent and cook food, especially in places where it is dangerous to make a fire. This spring, spending the night in a tent with a night temperature in the air of about 8-10 degrees, we literally heated the tent in just three minutes, as if it were a warm, heated dugout. At the same time, the tile standing between our loungers from tourist rugs worked without open fire.
