"When the smell came into the room, I immediately picked up the children, dressed them," the rescued woman said. — We were standing in the kitchen with the window open, farthest from the fire. Then the firemen came, the children were taken away, and then me. Of course, it was scary. It wasn't even the first time I managed to dial the number of firefighters."

Inna Paustovskaya, a close friend of the Stankevich family, told Komsomolskaya Pravda in an interview that saving people was the life of Peter and his wife:

"He and Katya have always risked their lives. Even on vacation, they did not forget their vocation and saved the drowning. On weekends we trained, worked out working elements. Many times he saved people even on his weekends, going to a fire if he was nearby. Petya almost always carried the equipment with him, despite the fact that it weighs more than 30 kilograms… There was a case when he instructed a friend on the phone how to start a stopped heart in a child who eventually managed to be saved.

Petya just didn't have time to get out of the fire. He was responsible and did not leave earlier until he had completed the work one hundred percent. And so he worked for more than 10 years. He came to this profession very young, or rather, the profession chose him."
