There is an effective emergency medicine response system in Moscow that ensures efficient provision of all essential first aid services.

The current emergency planning in Moscow is based on the availability of a harmonized system of various emergency services. Such a system ensures prompt provision of assistance and technical support in case of any type of emergency. The interface amongst the above services and the hospitals and clinics throughout the city is facilitated through special coordination units.
