It is with great pleasure that we meet, albeit remotely, and in this way I am given the opportunity to thank you, each and every one of you, and all the Civil Protection staff for the truly outstanding work you have done in extremely difficult circumstances. in the last month.

We were called upon to manage an unprecedented health crisis. We handled it, you handled it with absolute competence, with a great level of seriousness. And I have to tell you that especially in matters related to the tracking process – the so-called contact tracing – the detection of suspicious incidents, you managed to do an excellent job in adverse conditions.

I will be very happy to see and present to me today the tools you have at your disposal, the systems, so that you can identify the suspicious cases, how you connect to the databases of the Ministry of Health, but also the system you have. at your disposal so that you can supervise those who have been quarantined.

I have to tell you that this infrastructure that we are building, infrastructure in means, logistical equipment but mainly infrastructure in know-how, is an infrastructure that will accompany us for the coming years. Because sooner or later we will be called upon to face similar crises in the future.

And we must be prepared and exude this sense of security and confidence, which will make citizens regain their trust in the state as a whole. With these words, I would like to thank you again for what you have done. ”

Immediately after the presentation of Mr. Hardalias, the Prime Minister stressed:

“Thank you very much. Everything you told us is extremely interesting. I was thinking that in the government’s program statements, nine months ago, I had made a commitment that the country would soon have a model of Civil Protection. Of course, having, as a country, traumatic experiences of natural disasters that cost the lives of many of our fellow citizens. And of course the coroner forced us to get into the accelerator and things we might do in months to do in weeks and things we would do in weeks to do in days or hours.

But I find that there is human resources, know-how, and with the right support we will soon be able to achieve that goal. And I look forward to having the opportunity to inaugurate the new Civil Protection building, which is already being prepared and which will be a model building where all the people will gather and all the information needed to manage them. any kind of crisis.

We identified political protection in our consciousness with natural disasters, with fires, with earthquakes, with floods. Obviously this is a very important part of the job of Civil Protection, we must not forget it, because in front of us we have a firefighting period, for which I know that – at the same time with the work you do in the coronation – you are preparing.

But we found that we have other threats. There are also invisible enemies who can be extremely dangerous and who require another degree of preparation and another degree of readiness. I would like to thank again in your person and in the face of all your worthy associates again every member of the Civil Protection, all the officers of the Police, the Armed Forces, the Fire Brigade, who assist in this interoperable body that allows us all to feel safe.

Security is a precondition for prosperity, democracy, freedom, and the protection of human life and the health of its citizens is the primary responsibility of the state. A very heavy burden of this work has fallen on you. You have the thanks and gratitude of the whole Greek society and I believe that this should give you, to all the executives of the Civil Protection, a great satisfaction to continue with even greater intensity, with even greater enthusiasm, the excellent work you do.
