At the national level, IGSU coordinates all the organizations involved in the management of emergency situations in compliance with international standards.
At the local level (in counties), the branches are called County Inspectorate for Emergency Situations (acronym: ISU), with each branch having multiple subunits (fire stations, detachments, intervention guards).
