The national preparedness refers to the actions taken to plan, organize, equip, train, and exercise to build and sustain the capabilities necessary to prevent, protect against, mitigate the effects of, respond to, and recover from those threats that pose the greatest risk to the security of the Nation.
The disaster preparedness is a continuous and integrated process resulting from a wide range of contributors, resources and activities strengthening community-based disaster preparedness through national programs for the community, and through direct support of the communities own activities.
The National Center of Security and Protection supports preparedness by conducting comprehensive research and analysis; developing policies; defining necessary capabilities required to address threats; implementing state-of-the-art training and education for the first responders, emergency personnel, local public health and medical facility staff and communities; and providing direct and adequate assistance to communities.
