Civil/Passive Defense

Based on the principles governing crisis management, passive/civil defense is defined as a group of preparations, measures and plans that on the one hand boost the defense power of the system at time of crisis while on the other they reduce consequences of crisis and facilitate reconstruction of damaged areas with minimum costs.
The most important objective behind passive defense is to prevent crisis and distance oneself from crisis-stricken conditions and to quickly control the situation in the event of crisis and bring conditions back to normal. Therefore, by complying with the principles of passive defense, vulnerability and incidence of crises will decline sharply.
