The enhancement of preparedness of the rescue forces of the Slovak Republic

01.07.2011 - 31.03.2017

Since 1998, Slovakia has seen a big increase in the occurrence of various types of natural disasters and of other types of emergencies. This is reflected in a 25% rise of overall rescue activities between 1998 and 2008. The Integrated Rescue System (1RS) of the Slovak Republic needs to provide the assistance as fast and effective as possible. The speed and effectiveness of the assistance is to a great extent influenced by the professional knowledge and technical equipment of the rescue forces, as well as the effectiveness of deployment. The analysis of the intervention actions of the rescue forces shows that incidents like floods, forest fires, wind or snow calamities, mass traffic accidents in tunnels and the leakage of dangerous substances are the accidents where the rescue forces suffer the biggest lack of professional preparedness and the lack of necessary technical equipment necessary for the management of such situations.
