Protection and Rescue Directorate

The Protection and Rescue Directorate (PRD) was established by the Law on Protection and Rescue ant its work started in 2005 is an independent state body.  Among others it is responsible for Protection and Rescue of people, the environment, material goods, etc. It is well equipped and it participates in ARGOS consortium.

Protection and Rescue Directorate is an independent governmental organization since 2005. Previously, it was part of Ministry of Defence (Civil Protection Sector). The Directorate is consisted of one central office located in Skopje, of 4 sections with 11 departments, 4 independent departments and 35 regional departments for protection and rescue, covering the overall territory of the state. From 2010 one new Department for special aerial fire fighting services has been established.

PRD is the national disaster management authority with responsibility in prevention, preparedness, response and early recovery. The essence of the system for rescue and protection is represented with the measures, units and headquarters for rescue and protection. PRD units according to the Law on rescue and protection can be national and local. In the national rescue and protection units we have the employees of the PRD, members of the Fast response teams and the 14 biggest fire fighting stations in the country. In real time situation they can all be activated by decision of the Director of the PRD which is commandeer of the National HQ for rescue and protection. PRD units can be also used for international disaster management operations. Since 2012 Republic of North Macedonia via PRD is member country of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism. It is a platform that unites EU member states, EEA countries, EU candidate countries and potential candidates in their efforts for enhancing disaster management in general on EU and national level. International organizations such as the United Nations, the EU and NATO have set the standard for cooperation between countries in the area of protection and rescue from natural and other disasters.

Engineering Institution

The initiative for constituting an Engineering Institution (EI) was born immediately after the liberation after the Second World War. The Association of Engineers and Technicians of North Macedonia was founded in May 1945

The organizational structure of the Association of Engineers and Technicians of North Macedonia at that time was the following:

• Local subsidiaries – as basic units, and

• Professional sections for specific vocational questions which in 1951 become republic professional associations of engineers and technicians.

In 1960 the republic professional associations of engineers and technicians became republic professional confederations of engineers and technicians. The name of the association changed again in 1995 when it became Institution of engineering scientific associations and organizations and this name lasted until 1999 when it changed into Engineering Institution of North Macedonia

Today the Institution consists of 16 participants: with different engineering subjects from 1). Association of Traffic Engineers of North Macedonia, till to 15) Association for Information and Communication Technologies ICT-ACT
