Mission & Disaster Reduction Profile

EMERCOM was set up in 1994. Its task was to ensure prompt and effective actions when emergencies arise. In 1995, two federal laws were enforced “On Protection of Population and Territories from Natural and Man-Made Emergencies” and “On Emergency and Rescue Services and Status of Rescuers”. They laid down the foundation of the government policy, administrative and legal norms in the realm of population protection and rescuers.
