Disaster prevention

Civil protection is used when security measures are no longer guaranteed due to other legislation.

In addition to the fire brigades, private aid organisations and the Federal Agency for Technical Relief are deployed in particular. The training and further education in civil protection builds on the specialist training of Lower Saxony's fire brigades and aid organisations. As a central training facility, the state has set up the Lower Saxony Academy for Fire and Disaster Protection (NABK) with locations in Celle and Loy.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the districts and independent cities.

For measures for radiation protection and flood prevention, responsibility remains with the responsible department, even in the event of a disaster. In operation, supplementary administrative assistance by the civil protection agencies is possible.

For general questions, please contact the fire brigade, the Federal Agency for Technical Relief or the aid organisations in your municipality.

In emergencies, dial 112.
