The Ministry of Emergency Situations (Uzbek: Oʻzbekiston Respublikasi Favqulodda vaziyatlar vazirligi; abbreviated MCHS) is the government agency overseeing emergency services in Uzbekistan. It is responsible for aiding the people of Uzbekistan and protecting them during natural disasters, overseeing emergency measures, and coordination of other ministries and departments in such events.[1]


The functions of the MCHS was laid out in a presidential decree dating back to March 4, 1996, which defines the following tasks of the ministry:


The Republican Center for the Training of Heads of Civil Defense and Emergency Situations was established in 1992 as an independent agency of the Government of Uzbekistan. It operated until 1996 when a decision made by Uzbek President Islam Karimov on August 16, 1995, on the establishment of a Ministry of Emergency Situations came into effect. Immediately after its founding, it began the work of coordinating the establishment of public emergency reserve funds for financial, medical, material and technical resources to overcome the consequences of events that might be considered national emergencies.[2] In 2019, the Main Directorate of Fire Safety of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Service for Controlling the Impact on Hydrometeorological Processes of the Ministry of Defense were transferred to the MCHS.[3]
