Servizio Nazionale


La “protezione civile” è l’insieme delle attività messe in campo per tutelare l’integrità della vita, i beni, gli insediamenti e l’ambiente dai danni o dal pericolo di danni che derivano dalle calamità: previsione e prevenzione dei rischi, soccorso delle popolazioni colpite, contrasto e superamento dell’emergenza e mitigazione del rischi. La protezione civile non è un compito assegnato a una singola amministrazione, ma una funzione attribuita a un sistema complesso: il Servizio Nazionale della Protezione Civile.
