Fire of industrial building in Police nad Metují
On 6th May 2020, a fire of the building of the HAUK Ltd. Company in Police nad Metují, Eastern Bohemia, was reported to the Operational and Information Centre of the Hradec Králové Region Fire Rescue Service. The fire of the industrial building, which at first glance seemed as an unannounced incineration of waste on the company's premises, was eventually recorded in the historical tables of the Hradec Králové Region FRS as the fourth largest fire in last 20 years. The fire completely affected an area of ​​about 5,000 square meters.

Measurement of hose line parameters
Cooperation between the Fire Rescue Service of the Central Bohemian Region and the Technical Institute of Fire Protection in testing parameters of hose lines is summarised here. The tests were aimed to obtain values ​​of actual flows and losses in hose lines, and focused on the use of hoses with smaller diameters. The tests were extended to simulate a real intervention in the eleventh floor of a high-rise building, where the actual water supply to the two attack streams was monitored.

First wave of COVID-19 pandemic in Europe
Openly speaking, the European Union and its Member States have been hit unprepared by the current COVID-19 pandemic, and at least at the beginning of its spreading in Europe, their response has not been swift and coordinated enough. The reasons are partly understandable and relate to the fact that the Member States have never faced something like this before, and the European Union does not have the powers in this area to enable it to react appropriately.

Assessment of protection of significant soft targets and vulnerable structures using behavioural evacuation models
The Department of Civil Protection and Crisis Management of the Ministry of the Interior - General Directorate of the Fire Rescue Service of the Czech Republic, the Brno University of Technology, and the City District of Prague 11 created educational material entitled "Assessment of protection of significant soft targets - vulnerable structures due to an emergency through evacuation or shelter". This material is currently distributed to individual regions through the MI - General Directorate of the FRS CR, as end users are members of regional FRSs, owners or operators of buildings and others.

Beginning of the end of nuclear weapons
The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), or the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty, is the first legally binding international agreement to comprehensively prohibit nuclear weapons with the ultimate goal being their total elimination. It was adopted on 7th July 2017 and will enter into force on 22nd January 2021. It is very likely that when the possible third wave of the COVID-19 will end, the boom in the anti-nuclear movement will start, as Joe Biden, the new president of the United States, was very active in nuclear disarmament even as vice president under Barack H. Obama.
