Day of the Ministry of Emergencies of Azerbaijan (16/12)

Every year on December 16, Azerbaijan celebrates a professional holiday - the Day of Employees of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Azerbaijan, established by the order of President Ilham Aliyev in 2006.

The date of the holiday was chosen in honor of the anniversary of the establishment of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in the country - the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Azerbaijan - December 16, 2005.

The Ministry of Emergency Situations of Azerbaijan is called upon to solve difficult tasks, firstly, in connection with the difficult geological situation in the region in which the Republic is located. Increased seismic activity of underground plateaus, leading to frequent earthquakes, eruptions of mud volcanoes, as well as various kinds of landslides and descents, creates a constant threat to life, housing and property of people.
