Bulgarian measures for taking care of people who can not do it by themselves


The Disaster Protection Act provides for undertaking specific measures in disaster situations for the cares of children and people if such cares cannot be exercised due to the state of disaster by the persons who usually exercise them. Based on this statutory framework, the local authorities have implemented concrete procedures for people in need of special assistance in their municipal plans for disaster protection, explicitly defining the institutions and officials responsible for taking care of such groups (children and disadvantaged people) if such care cannot be undertaken by the persons who usually do them. As such, all plans for disaster protection at the municipal level provide priority care for children, elderly and victims with special needs, including disadvantaged and disabled people.
