     Department of Monitoring and Fire Prevention

History
         The department was opened as part of Kyiv training course for the development of fire-fighting officership at USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs, which was launched on October,14, 1947 by order of the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs. Captain Ya. H. Sukhomlin was appointed as the head of special cycle. On July, 1952, on the basis of Kyiv training courses for the development of fire-fighting officership the Kyiv fire-fighting technical school was opened. The school provided five cycles of education. The cycle of Fire Prevention was among those five. Captain S.Ya. Suliy (1952-1961) was the first commander of Fire Prevention cycle. On May, 1954 Kyiv fire-fighting technical school was relocated to the city of Lviv and was renamed as Lviv Fire-fighting technical School at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs.
     In accordance with the Cabinet of Ministers’ resolution #245 of June 21, 2001 “On the reorganization of Lviv Fire-fighting technical school at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs into Lviv institute of Fire Safety”, the Fire Prevention department was opened on the basis of the cycle. Colonel T.B. Yuz’kiv was the first head of the department. In 2004, due to the reorganization of structural subunits of the Institute, the Fire Prevention department was renamed as the Department of Monitoring and Fire Prevention. Since 2007 the Candidate of Science, Associate professor, Colonel of civil defense service O.I. Bashyns’kyi has been the head of the department.

Scientific-methodical work of the department: 

    The aim of the department is to train young specialists with the qualification of Bachelor, Specialist and Master specializing in “Fire Safety”, “Civil Defense”, “and Work Safety”; qualified workers for factories, institutions. It also aims at advanced training of the command staff of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine and receiving second higher education by the students of the Faculty of Pre-University Training and Postgraduate Education. A number of researches are being carried out to secure the fire safety of different ministries.
     Department workers also review abstracts of thesis, manuals and textbooks. They also take part in the specialized boards of studies and are involved in the presentations of thesis.
     Part of the practical classes is taught at real functioning objects. Students and cadets have a chance, thus, to consolidate the theoretical knowledge, improve practical skills and gain some experience. They also have a chance to observe modern means of fire protection, new space planning decisions and smoke exhaust systems.
 


 

Material-technical base: 

         The Department of Monitoring and Fire Prevention has been allocated certain rooms and laboratories in the educational building. There are also two rooms for conducting practical classes for students and cadets. Classrooms are provided with the miniatures of real functioning objects of Lviv, which deserve high attention. The lecturer can use these miniatures to demonstrate the space-planning decisions, automatic fire-alarm and fire-extinguishing systems, the structure of the escape means designed for different types of constructions. The miniatures are equipped with small bulb lights to indicate the certain objects in the building.
    The classrooms contain miniatures of the following types of buildings: public buildings, entertainment buildings, industrial buildings, hospitals and other buildings, which call for high attention in the context of fire safety.

Areas of research: 

       Academic teaching staff conducts the researches on the following topics: “Ways of Improving Concrete Stability on Exposure to High Temperatures” (Associate professor O.I.Bashyns’kyi, M.Z.Peleshko, T.H.Berezhans’kyi), “Improvement of Metal Constructions Fire Resistance with Help of Coverage Made of Filled Silicon Chemical Mixtures (Associate professor Yu. V. Hutsuliak, V.V. Artemenko, S.Ya. Vovk).
    In 2003 members of academic teaching staff published 22 research articles in specialized publications and took part in 30 international research-to-practice conferences. Academic teaching staff has designed a number of manuals, which have been successfully implemented in the learning process of higher educational establishments and are used by certain subunits of Emergencies Ministry of Ukraine. In particular, “Calculation of Armored Concrete Floor Fire-resistance” (Yu.V.Hutsuliak, T.B.Yuz’kiv, I.V.Dvorianyn, O.I.Bashyns’kyi), “Strengths of the Materials” (L.I.
