Some of the nations who initiated the act of civil protection were United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Sweden. This term is widely used within European Union to refer to the different government activities and systems supporting this act.

Why Have Civil Protection Programmes Come About?

August 27th, 2009

Civil protection programmes, or civil defence programmes as they are more popularly known now, originally meant to prepare the civilians of a country against the threats of military attack or invasion and as far back as 1920 such programmes were topics of discussion. Once the possibility of nuclear warfare was imagined, programmes were stepped up but since the end of the Cold War there has been a shift in strategy and thinking toward disaster containment and management rather than a military emphasis. Worldwide, different nations are working on responding to crises affecting civilians.

Having a quick response to any civilian emergency is vital for a civil defense plan. If a nuclear fallout is expected then the key is to get to as many people as quickly as possible to minimize life loss and protect assets. Training civilians in emergency response has proved to be successful in the past. A civilian with less that 40 hours of military and emergency response training can handle about 95% of all required duties. This helps to take the load off military personnel for the more vital operations and organization of the civilians.

Getting a nation prepared for every possible civil defense scenario is a difficult task but nations are constantly trying to stay ahead. Most urban areas have a blast shelter and emergency evacuation plan for its citizens. Governments also keep a stock of emergency medical supplies and food supplies in strategic locations should some mass shortage or need arise. There are also Petroleum reserves that would keep vital government and military supply chains working. As an individual one should seek out and become familiar with their governments preparation plans.

What Does Civil Defence Do?

August 20th, 2009

Civil defence is concerned with the threat of emergencies and disasters that may strike a country rather than military defence, which is concerned with threats of attack from hostile countries. Preparation for civil defence programmes requires assessment to understand prevention and preparedness for the resultant planning. Coordination of emergency services and personnel for evacuation procedures, crisis management and the logistics of emergencies management and contingency planning all fall under the same umbrella when considering how best to act in response to any disaster.
