Civil Protection

The superordinate “Civil Protection” stands for all tasks and measures taken by the municipalities in case of a disaster situation. The federation is responsible for the civil protection, i.e all non-police and non-military actions taken for protecting the civilisation and their livelihood against (severe) needs as well as the ramifications of wars and armed conflicts. Moreover, it contains preventive measures to avoid, restrain and overcome such happenings.
