This is an article about the modern meaning of the term "public safety." See the Committee of Public Safety for the French Revolutionary governing body.

Public Safety involves the protection of the general population from all manners of significant danger, injury, damage or harm, such as may occur in a natural disaster, and the prevention of the same. Although this protection is provided by those traditional organizations known as Emergency Services: the police, fire and rescue, and ambulance, in the preventative sense "public safety" must be the priority of all those who, in any way, engineer circumstances for others.

Additional organizations may include consumer protection, the Emergency telephone number system, animal control officers, various utility inspectors, and others.

[edit] International

Some European Union Laws includes the competence in civil protection and safety.

There is not a world civil protection authority or a common world emergency number.
