As it is known, the World Civil Defence Day is commemorated annually on the 1st of March. On that day in 1931, upon the initiative of several states at once, French Surgeon-General George Saint-Paul founded in Paris the Association of Geneva Zones, from which the present International Civil Defence Organisation (ICDO) originated in 1958. The Republic of Kazakhstan joined ICDO in 1996, the Russian Federation - in 1993.
Since 1990, the World Civil Defence Day is celebrated in many ICDO member-states to draw the world public attention to the importance of civil defence, to enhance readiness of population for self-protection and to pay tribute to the national civil defence services for their difficult and hazardous work.
