The Byelorussian post has issued a stamp dedicated to the 75th anniversary of fire and rescue sports in Belarus.
The history of fire and rescue sports in Belarus started in 1937 when the first Belarusian fire brigades sport competitions were held. The program of the competitions included applied elements used for putting out a fire.
During this time international recognition of fire and rescue sports was achieved and its importance for the training of fire fighters and rescue workers was demonstrated all over the world.
Modern fire and rescue sports include the following 4 events: ascent to the 4th floor of a training tower, 100m hurdles, 4x100m hurdles relay race and fire attack.
The stamp depicts one of the four events of fire and rescue sports - ascent of the scaling-ladder to the 4th floor of a training tower.
