World Civil Defense Day 2024, observed on March 1st, aims to raise awareness about civil protection and emergency preparedness globally. It underscores the crucial role of civil defense in enhancing resilience, minimizing disaster impacts, and ensuring individual safety during crises. The day provides a platform to spotlight the efforts of civil defense organizations in safeguarding communities from various disasters and emergencies, reminding individuals, communities, and governments to actively engage in disaster preparedness and response.
