Estonian government works on a concept of civil defence in case of a natural disaster or a military attack
Estonia wants its citizens to get ready for possible external attacks or natural disasters. The government started to work on a new concept of civil defence. The group working on the document develops ways for a quick reaction of people and creates training programs for civilians. For example, plans for a situation when electricity and communication systems are down.
Recommendations will be released on what quantity of water, food and other basic goods every Estonian family should have in case of emergency. The plan also includes schools. Teachers already started civil defence trainings.
The concept will be ready by the end of the year.
