Pursuant to the national security policy objectives the Civil Emergency Preparedness and Strategies Division represents the Czech Republic in the NATO Civil Emergency Planning Committee (CEPC) and the Civil Protection Group (CPG). The division also coordinates policy across central administrative authorities within the NATO civil emergency planning framework. 

The Civil Emergency Preparedness and Strategies Division contributes, within its area of responsibility, to the meeting of the Alliance’s overall strategic objectives and art. 3 and 5 of the Washington Treaty. The division cooperates with the Permanent Delegation of the Czech Republic to NATO in Brussels and maintains liaison officer to the permanent delegation at NATO. It keeps records of the documents from the NATO electronical evidence as well as secret classified NATO documents pursuant to the laws of the Czech Republic and instructions of the National Security Authority. It also processes required outputs (e.g. responses to NATO questionnaires, materials for meetings, opinions, positions of the Czech Republic, etc.) and contributes to the execution of the tasks related to the contact point for Euro-Atlantic Coordination Centre for dealing with emergencies (EADRCC).

“In order more effectively to achieve the objectives of this Treaty, the Parties, separately and jointly, by means of continuous and effective self-help and mutual aid, will maintain and develop their individual and collective capacity to resist armed attack.“

“The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, […] will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area. […] Such measures shall be terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security.”
