The student rescue corps has become an integral part of the state emergency response system. Students are involved in putting out fires in the Tyumen region, they fought floods across the country from Crimea to the Irkutsk region. Corps members took part in Arctic expeditions.

As an organization, the All-Russian Student Rescue Corps has existed for 20 years. The building was created on the initiative of the then Minister of Emergency Situations Sergei Shoigu. Two months after the founding conference, which was attended by 47 people, the Corps signed a cooperation agreement with the Russian Emergencies Ministry. Since then, the number of volunteer rescuers-students has grown to 8000, and the Corps, with its network covering 72 regions of Russia, is included in the unified state system in the field of prevention and elimination of accidents, catastrophes and natural disasters.

In 2021, All-Russian Student Rescue Corps volunteers participated in the elimination of the consequences of 5 major emergencies.

In May 2021, a large fire was discovered in the village of Mullashi, Tyumen Region. Students extinguished fires in an area of 5 hectares of forest and shed 8,000 square meters of smoldering shrubs and trees. Volunteers flooded the peat bogs, made maps of fires.

In the summer of 2021, 100 volunteers of the Corps worked to eliminate the consequences of severe flooding in Yalta and Kerch. Some of them helped the residents of the Kuibyshevo village of the Bakhchisarai region. Residential buildings were flooded there due to heavy rain. In close cooperation with employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, students pumped out 134 thousand cubic meters of water from the basements, drained more than 77 thousand square meters in the housing stock of the village. As a result of flooding, trees fell into river beds and blocked water streams. Volunteers sawed down 850 cubic meters of trees. The water brought mud and mud into the cellars. Students cleared 4.5 thousand cubic meters of basements and took out 7 thousand cubic meters of mud.
