Early-warning system in case of disasters (Ordinance 26/2009 of the Council of Ministers)

Executive
Decree/Order/Ordinance
Passed in 2009
The Ordinance provides for the National early- warning disaster system to:
1. Foster continuous relationship for exchanging information and action coordination within the executive power and a component of the rescue system as defined in the Law on Disaster Protection in the event of imminent or occurring disaster;
2. Warn and inform the public of impending or occurring disaster, the dynamics of its development, the measures to limit its impacts and appropriate actions to be taken by citizens.
The ordinance starts to be implemented in individual municipalities - e.g. Sofia, where the early-warning system for flooding should cover 50% of the citizens of Sofia by 2020.
