Czech Republic: National Report in preparation for WCDR (2005)

  • Title in original language: National Report in preparation for WCDR (2005) - Czech Republic
  • Publication date: 2005
  • Source:Czech Republic - government

The Czech Republic has a relatively new policy of crisis management, which includes especially early warning, dissemination of warnings with precisely specified responsibilities and competencies of all main
“players” like Fire and Rescue Service (FRS), Army, various state institutions (ministries), and also regional institutions (regional administrations, regional FRS, and others). Similarly the system goes
down to communities and their administrations.

The Crisis Management system together with Integrated Rescue System has been defined by a new legislation package valid since January 1, 2001. The whole system has been successfully used during
the 2002 August catastrophic Flood in the Czech Republic (and Central Europe). The government in January 2000 approved General Strategy for flood prevention.

Some other precaution related more to prevention of disasters (mainly floods)) in future are solved in Water Act or other specific norms.
