Matters of emergency management present one of the most complex and very sensitive segments of every society. Every country gives a priority to the emergency readiness because preventive measure would minimize natural disasters which could threaten the state. The concept of civil protection mainly belongs to the internal affairs of states1 nevertheless it is a flaw to say that this is a responsibility of exclusively one state. Natural disasters can occur not only within one state- they can have regional and wider repercussions. Truly, the matters of civil protection are already becoming more of international character.
