Shelters


The creation of shelters/protection areas is a basic protection measure for non combatant civilians, for a short period, in case of hostilities. The program for creating the shelters started in 1999. Then, there were two basic choices before the state: the first concerned the creation of underground shelters in large open areas that would have been expropriated for this purpose. The second concerned the creation of shelters in existing basements. After studying the two options, the first one was excluded because of the huge economic cost. So, the Cyprus Republic ended to the second choice that had the dynamic of immediate and mass implementation. Civil Defence congratulates all these thousands of people, which have given their consent to convert their owned spaces to public shelter spaces. Without their consent, the whole idea of creating shelters for people would have been much more difficult.
