Civil defence section

The Civil Defence Section at the University is part of the Defence Affairs Department, which is responsible for planning the University’s operation in times of crisis and war.

Similar activities are carried out by the Civil Defence Section in the area of planning the rescue and protection of the University’s personnel, monuments and important facilities for the time of war and natural disasters. To perform these tasks the Section appoints and trains OC formations in the number of 176 employees of the University.

Internal threats may arise in specific points (objects) in connection with the storage of various laboratory materials, conducting scientific research and the existing technical infrastructure.

External threat resulting from the location of university facilities in the centre of the city of Wrocław in the vicinity of administrative buildings, voivodship and municipal authorities. It can be assumed that during the war the University facilities may be exposed to:
