Ministry of Emergency Situations Workers' Day in Azerbaijan Date in the current year: December 16, 2016

Ministry of Emergency Situations Workers' Day in Azerbaijan Ministry of Emergency Situations Workers' Day is observed in Azerbaijan on December 16. This professional day was established by President of Azerbaijan in December 2006. The date of the holiday was chosen to celebrate the foundation anniversary of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Azerbaijan in December 2005.

Earthquakes, landslides and mudflows occur very often in Azerbaijan. These natural disasters are caused by the seismological activity of the region, where Azerbaijan is situated. Moreover, the seasonal rise of the Caspian Sea and the Kura river affect the agricultural land. Creation of Ministry of Emergency Situations seems a logical step towards fighting the natural disasters and saving people and their property.

All workers of Ministry expect congratulations on this day from their colleagues, friends and relatives. The government of Azerbaijan also times this professional day to hold the award ceremony for the distinguished employees of the Ministry.
