Residents of Ruskopolyanska hromada built fire station on their own

Residents of the Ruska Polyana village restored the fire station on their own. Construction began in the 80's, though only a carcass was built.

“Once a fire station was being built here. It was supposed to have 3-4 cars to serve the whole Cherkasy Rayon,” says Oleh Hrytsenko, head of the Ruskopolyanska AH. “However, the construction was frozen and by 2017 the building was standing without a roof, windows and doors. When people asked to create a fire department, I addressed the rayon leadership and village heads, but nobody was willing to support us financially. Then I applied to businessmen – some of them gave money, and some bought repair materials. People came to plaster the walls. My mother-in-law cooked varenyky for everyone.”

Now the premises are practically ready for use. The oblast directorate of the State Emergency Service leased a fire truck for 1 UAH. The AH plans to recruit a team of four fire fighters and at the same time fire truck drivers. Former retired firefighters have already volunteered to work. They will start servicing calls already in August.
