Summary/Abstract: In relation to public health, emergency situations caused by climate and other changes need to be looked at and addressed in a multidisciplinary way. The article deals with the management of emergency situations as a current phenomenon of contemporary society. It is a choice of health approach. The aim is to point out the importance of the analysis of emergency situations, early detection of their impact and the rapid elimination of negative factors, as well as the possibilities of prevention and measures taken against the emergency situations of the Slovak Republic and worldwide. The authors draw from the Constitutional Act of the Slovak Republic No. 227/2002 Coll. on State Security in Time of War, State of War, State of Emergency and State of Emergency and Act no. 103/2015 Coll. on Protection, Support and Development of Public Health. The activities described are related to the preparation and elimination of disaster consequences on the basis of selected emergency criteria, especially floods and storms in the Slovak Republic and Europe after 2015, stating that any reduction of emergency risks also mitigates the consequences of events and increases the resilience of people affected by the natural elements. It is a shift from policies to intergovernmental and intergovernmental cooperation, disaster preparedness and humanitarian aid for infrastructure building.
