Civil protection.

The fire and ambulance services office is responsible for local civil protection in the city of Bonn.

Civil protection includes disaster management, as the effects on the population of natural disasters and armed conflicts are similar and require the same kind of response.

The department for Disaster Management carries out emergency planning for such situations. It is also responsible for setting up and maintaining the infrastructure required for this kind of incident. This includes a network of alarm sirens, shelters and an emergency supply of drinking water.

In addition to the professional and volunteer fire departments, these tasks are performed by a series of organisations (with mainly voluntary helpers) as well as the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (Technisches Hilfswerk) and, under certain conditions, also the army and police force.
