Emergency response and crisis management

The responsibility for fire services, emergency response, crisis management, and medical assistance. The Safety Region performs these tasks.

Municipalities are responsible for fire services, emergency response, crisis management, and medical assistance (Security Regions Act and Security Regions Decree), but are under the obligation to have these tasks performed by the Security Region, with the exception of the population care (what are referred to as the ‘municipal processes’) element of the crisis management organization.
