Ministry of Emergency Management

The Ministry of Emergency Management (Chinese: 中华人民共和国应急管理部) is a cabinet-level executive department of the State Council that is responsible for emergency management, work safety, and emergency rescue. 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.
