Civil protection system


The mission of civil protection is to protect the population and its vital resources in the event of disasters, emergencies and armed conflict.

Civil protection organisation (CPO)

The CPO, an additional civil protection organisation, cares for persons in need of protection, and supports the partner organisations over longer periods of time.

Structure, command and management

Civil protection is an integrated management, protection, rescue and relief system.

Partner organisations

The civil protection system must ensure that the five partner organisations: the police, the fire, health care and technical services, as well as the CPO cooperate effectively.
