Every year World Civil Defence Day is observed on 01 March. The day marks the importance of civil defence in protecting people and their property from natural disasters, accidents and other emergencies.
World Civil Defence Day was established in the mid of 20th Century when the world was experiencing rapid technological change. The emergence of the cold war during this period led to the development of nuclear weapons that started raising questions about the safety of people.
International Civil Defence Organization (ICDO), a specialized agency of the UN, and Geneva, Switzerland, came up to protect people from their worries in 1950.
World Civil Defence Day was first celebrated in 1990 by the International Civil Defence Organization (ICDO).
