The National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC)

The federal centre of expertise for exceptional events

The National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) is the federal centre of expertise for exceptional events. It can be contacted around the clock, 365 days of the year, and can be activated within hours.

Federal Reporting and Situation Centre

One of its tasks is the management of incidents involving real or suspected increases in radioactivity, large-scale chemical accidents, overflow or rupture of dams, as well as risks related to both satellite re-entry and natural dangers. In any event involving radioactivity, the centre is charged with ordering immediate measures to protect the population. Regardless of the type of emergency, the NEOC is the first point of contact of the cantons for all civil protection issues. Furthermore, in 2007 the NEOC was commissioned to run the Federal Reporting and Situation Centre (MLZ). The necessary networks and instruments are constantly being improved.
