Civil Protection Week

Why a Civil Protection Week?

The reason for highlighting this event was to raise public awareness about the importance of being properly prepared to face a variety of emergency situations, such as flooding, extended power outages in winter, windstorms or a house fire.

Emphasis was placed on the need for each family to prepare its own safety plan and emergency kit to ensure it can be self-sufficient for the first 72 hours in an emergency situation, until help arrives.

You are invited to accomplish the following actions to ensure your safety and the safety of your family.
