in various regions of the Russian Federation, accidental explosions of natural gas due to improper operation of gas stoves in apartment buildings with death or injury of people cause a wide public response. It is difficult to restore (dismantle) building structures damaged by natural gas explosion and, if necessary, then to relocate people to other dwellings. Combustion products resulting from the subsequent fire enter the surrounding environment and create more danger for people. Prevention of natural gas explosion with proper operation of gas stoves in apartment buildings is still an urgent and not yet fully solved problem. Various options are offered, such as replacement of a gas stove with an electric stove, installation of a gas alarm in the kitchen, installation of a solenoid valve on the gas pipeline, and a number of others. In this article, we applied an analytical method to study emergency prevention associated with improper operation of gas stoves in apartment buildings; the paper presents the analysis of natural gas explosions in apartment buildings in the Russian Federation in the period from 2009 to 2018 (inclusive). At the same time, circumstances preceding those natural gas explosions are studied. The article analyzes requirements of the Russian Federation’s normative legal acts to premises with gas stoves. The study reveals unsolved problems with ensuring safety of people when using gas stoves in apartment buildings in the Russian Federation.
