The process of active snowmelt begins on the reservoirs of the Republic of Tatarstan, the ice gradually loses its strength (its structure becomes needle-like), while the mass output of fishermen on the ice continues. Every year in the spring, incidents related to a failure on fragile ice and the separation of ice floes are recorded. In the spring of 2019, 3 cases related to the separation of an ice floe (21 people were saved) and 3 cases related to a failure on the ice (3 people were saved) were registered in Tatarstan.
Inspectors SISV prepared a video on self-rescue if you fall through the ice and rules of conduct on water bodies in spring (Tatar and Russian), which you can find on the website of RT Ministry of emergency situations, as well as on the official Youtube channel of the Main Department of EMERCOM of Russia in the Republic of Tatarstan.
