South-East E urope region is increasingly threatened by various types of natural disasters (floods, droughts, temperature extremes, earthquakes, landslides, storms, etc.), technical and technological accidents, hazardous incidents and other emergencies, and this situation calls for an emergent and adequate response of responsible national and local actors.

The manual presents the basics for the associations of local authorities on preparedness and responding in emergency with emphasis on providing support to the municipalities. Since the associations of local authorities in the region of South-East Europe are of different size and capacity, it is suggested for each of them to adjust these guidelines to its human, technical and other resources. Finally, even though the associations are mostly member organizations, in times of emergency it is of key importance to assist and provide support to ALL affected municipalities regardless of their membership status.
