On implementation of Presidential instruction on establishing levels of emergency response

March 14, 2011

Following a meeting on forestry development on September 8, 2010, the Russian Government was instructed to consider the establishment of emergency response levels that envisage additional measures to ensure public safety.

Currently, a single state system is in place to prevent and manage emergency situations, the tasks of which are set forth in the Federal Law On Protection of Population and Territories from Natural and Man-Made Emergency Situations.

As part of the single state system for preventing and eliminating emergency situations, it is planned to regularly hold events to improve the response to accidents and disasters. The results of such events will be reflected in an annual state report on the protection of population and territories of Russia from natural and man-made emergency situations.
