As has already been mentioned, the probability of most major natural disasters occurring in Moscow is extremely limited or virtually nullified. Nevertheless, the city services have developed a special action plan (including evacuation and provision of medical assistance) to be implemented in the event of such emergency situations which they are monitoring on a regular basis (seismic, geomagnetic and meteo control).
The current emergency planning will be adequately modified for the Games. As for the chains of command and transfer of responsibilities, these will be adjusted to the overall security system envisaged for the Olympic Games.
The RF Civil Defence and Emergencies Ministry is entrusted with top authority for disaster coordination in the city. At Games-time this Ministry will directly interface with the Moscow OCOG Security Department.
