Civil Protection

In the field of civil protection, the European Union primarily monitors and dispatches civil protection aid both within the EU and beyond its borders. It also supervises the correct use of the Community mechanism and instruments for financing civil protection. The EU is keen to improve civil emergency planning at both the national and international level. The Monitoring and Information Centre ensures effective responses to crises and emergencies within the European Union and beyond its borders.

The underlying principles of EU cooperation in the field of civil protection are the responsibility of Member States, in particular in the area of preparation and prevention, and solidarity guaranteeing assistance from individual Member States and the EU as a whole in an emergency.

A topical subject is the support of preventive measures against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) accidents and risks. The Czech Presidency will focus on generally reinforcing the prevention and preparedness, improving the overall coordination of an EU response, and developing civil protection intervention models, including the development of a European Training Network for Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid.
