The Hellenic Region of Western Macedonia is committed to safeguarding human life and protecting citizens' assets. To this end, we actively support relevant initiatives and encourage the cooperation of all interested parties.
For the 5th year in a row we support SafeGreece initiative. This is an action that has become an institution, delivering new knowledge, experience and new practices to its constantly increasing audience.
On the edge of creation of the National Civil Protection Center in the county of Kozani, the 5th International Civil Protection Conference, SafeKozani 2018, will bring together both international and national representatives from scientific and technological communities, local government and central administration, the private sector and Volunteer's organizations.
We aim to:
- reinforce the interdependence and co-operation required by Civil Protection
- take advantage of all that technology has to offer
- talk about Civil Protection at the highest standards.
We are looking forward to welcome you in Western Macedonia
Together we re-design Civil Protection
