DETERMINATION OF PUBLIC REGULATION DIRECTIONS IN THE SPHERE OF FIRE SAFETY ON THE BASIS OF CONSIDERATION OF DATA OF FIRE STATISTICS
A review of statistics on the occurrence of fires and the death of people in Ukraine in the last ten years has been carried out. The studies were conducted using methods of mass statistical monitoring, statistical generalization and grouping, statistical processing of generalized indices as well as those divided into groups, and thorough qualitative analysis of the statistical data. In comparison with the world fire statistics, in Ukraine the unsatisfactory state in the sphere of fire safety remains, primarily associated with the protection of the population from fires. The facts of the imperfect organization of the state response system to fires were established, the need for further scientific analysis of fire statistics and the study of existing mechanisms and practices for registering fires and responding to dangerous events (fires) in the EU countries, the introduction of a national system of evaluating the effectiveness of fire and rescue units in Ukraine , development of measures of public administration in the sphere of fire safety, aimed at increasing the level of protection of the population from fires. In order to formulate directions and measures of public administration regarding the protection of the population from fires in Ukraine, it is necessary to conduct a thorough scientific analysis of the existing public administration system in the sphere of civil protection and fire safety, namely: to carry out research of existing practices on the statistical accounting of fires; carry out a comprehensive assessment of the effectiveness of existing mechanisms and practices for responding to dangerous events; to study legal bases and normative criteria of work of fire and rescue units of Ukraine in comparison with EU member states.
