Civil Protection is a public service and the City Council has full responsibility within its municipal boundaries. As a major civil protection organisation, the City Council, together with other administrations, has the general capacity for acting, planning and coordinating in this area, with the main aim being to ensure the physical protection of people and their belongings in a situation of serious collective risk, public disaster or extraordinary catastrophe, where people's safety and lives may be at risk or where there may be numerous deaths.

In order to plan this coordination, a series of municipal emergency plans have been established, which are detailed below.
