Coordinated Medical Services (CMS)

Since 1 January 2023, the Coordinated Medical Services CMS and its administrative office is no longer affiliated to the Defence Group, but incorporated into the Federal Office for Civil Protection. This means that the CMS will be more closely integrated into the overall civil protection system. The legal basis for the integration of the CMS into the FOCP is provided by the Coordinated Medical Services Ordinance CMedSO.

The CMS supports the public healthcare sector through the coordinated deployment of resources from civil protection, private organisations, other cantons and the armed forces so as to provide the best possible care for patients in the event of disasters or emergencies. The aim is to provide optimal support in everyday life and to prepare for deployments within the framework of emergencies and disasters involving a mass influx of patients.
