ASSESSMENT OF THE LOCAL STATE ADMINISTRATION PREPAREDNESS LEVEL ON THE SOLUTION OF CRISIS EVENTS
The preparedness of the state and local administration to deal with different crisis events is a prerequisite for a functioning crisis management system in each country. However, the level of preparedness varies across the state from region to region, which can be caused by various factors. In recent years, in addition to the well-prepared crisis management system, the development of a society that is resilient to crisis events and increasingly engaged into the prevention and crisis events solution, has become an important objective of crisis management institutions worldwide. These efforts are carried out mostly at the local level. The aim of the article is therefore to investigate first and foremost the preparedness of the local government to deal with crisis events and consequently its ability to integrate community into this process. Based on the analysis of the crisis management system of the district Čadca, Slovakia, the problems, challenges as well as positive trends within the preparation processes and community integration are identified and discussed.
