The Ministry of Emergency Management (MEM) is a cabinet-level executive department of the State Council of China that is responsible for emergency management, work safety, and emergency rescue in the country. It is the result of a merger from emergency management departments in various ministries due to a state council reform in 2018.[1] In addition, it took over the functions of the former paramilitary Firefighting Corps of the People's Armed Police, which is today China Fire and Rescue.

When the Ministry of Emergency Management was created, it established the China Search and Rescue team, which replaced China International Search and Response Team in 2018.[2]: 245  As China Search and Rescue, the team is staffed entirely by civilians who are Ministry personnel.[2]: 245
