the PORTUGUESE NATIONAL AUTHORITY FOR EMERGENCY AND CIVIL PROTECTION (ANEPC), HONORED THIS YEAR :
In Portugal, the National Authority for Emergency and Civil Protection (ANEPC) is the State Entity responsible for the planning, coordination and execution of civil protection policies, namely in the prevention and response to major accidents and disasters, protection and relief operations of populations.
