Taking into account the perspective in the field of management of the prevention and of emergency situations of a partially united institutional system, with temporary functioning and only active at the time of the Emergency Situations, unable to provide an adequate response to the new challenges to national security , a national emergency management system was set up in Romania, composed of a number of authorities and bodies: the National Emergency Committee, the Ministerial Committees and other central public institutions for emergency situations, the Committee of the City Bucharest Emergency Situations, County Emergency Committees and Local Emergency Committees. In most Western and Central European countries, the domain is managed by the Ministries of the Interior (administration and interior, justice and home affairs) and the Justice, Home Affairs and Civil Protection Council functions at EU level.

The range of emergencies is widened by various natural disasters, storms, torrential rains and hail, blizzard, massive snow or avalanches, earthquakes, and land collapses, which in turn cause human casualties and material damage. These are the reasons why public authorities, world states, the international community develop security policies and strategies, create and develop specialized institutions, strive to prevent or mitigate risks, protect the population and goods in emergencies. Periodically, congresses and world conferences on civil protection are held to harmonize legislation, standardize response procedures, and facilitate international assistance in the event of civil emergencies.
