EMERCOM of Russia launched a unified online service for registering tourist groups with the help of which it will be possible for tourists to inform rescuers about the route of their movement in advance.

"A heading allowing submitting an online application for registration of a tourist group appeared on the main website of the EMERCOM of Russia. The user only needs to select the subject of the Russian Federation on the territory of which the tourist route is planned; after that he will automatically be redirected to the special page to fill in the application for the corresponding territorial body," the press service of the Ministry reports.

When submitting an application, it is necessary to indicate the number of group members and people in charge, contact numbers, detailed information on the route and other data. This should be done 10 days before the trip starts.

"The new service should significantly simplify the applications filing procedure to tourist organizations, individual entrepreneurs in the field of active tourism, individual tourists and groups traveling independently in the country, including with children.

Rescue sections, in their turn, will be able to organize searches in due time. In addition, EMERCOM employees will inform tourists about possible dangers on the upcoming route, weather conditions and will help to check personal equipment, communications equipment and route documents", the press service explained.

EMERCOM reminded that it is necessary to inform rescuers about the routes through hard-to-reach area such as water, mountain, speleological and other objects associated with an increased risk to life and possible health and property damage.
