ABSTRACT

Crisis management is closely related to the emergency event prevention, crisis reaction and after crisis prevention. Each country within its legislative frame has involved certainly higher competencies of Rescue system forces, Integrated system forces or firefighters who are mostly acting part of Integrated rescue system in Slovakia. Recently there is a negative trend in European cities connected to aggressive behaviour against firefighters disabling them to do their job. It was also observed and very well described that behaviour of both people and police under pressure of such a crisis situation as it was observed with a delay during the massive disaster in New Orleans. Paper deals with legal competences of rescue forces in order to be protected and to protect people in the area of natural or technology disaster and to maximize rescue efficiency. There were several incidents of misusing the power given to the responsible forces in contrast with more and more often the attacks of civil people against the rescue forces. No person has been accused from the criminal crime so far. The paper also deals with the current legal possibilities of rescue forces protection which remain unused, so far.
