Links and related materials

The Fire Service and Civil Protection, part of Barcelona City Council, takes preventive action to improve safety conditions for the public and public spaces, and deals with emergencies where their presence is required to protect or save the lives of the people affected.

It also promotes the drafting of civil protection plans, special plans, risk maps and regulations aimed at improving safety in the city's buildings, installations, facilities and infrastructures, in coordination with other public safety forces and services. That means it organises, co-ordinates and supervises the Emergency Management Centre as an emergency control unit in Barcelona.
