L'Aquila, 2009 - Attività di ricerca e soccorso delle strutture operative in seguito al terremoto del 6 aprile 2009

Italy is among the countries most exposed to natural and man-made risks. For this reason, it is essential to have a system that ensures the possibility to intervene quickly and efficiently in emergencies, but also to prevent and, as far as possible, foresee possible disasters.

For this reason, in Italy, civil protection is not a task assigned to a single administration but rather a function attributed to an integrated system, composed of public and private, central and territorial structures, which operate to ensure safety throughout the country: the National Service, established in 1992 with Law No. 225 and reformed in 2018 by the Civil Protection Code.
