During implementation of its tasks this service performs fire fighting and emergency rescue operations, state fire control, research works, collecting, processing, use and submission of information concerning fire and emergency safety.

NFSPPS realizes its activities by 28 regional units and Directorate, which implements methodical management and control of the regional units. There are district fire services and fire stations at the municipalities. Their distribution allows the achievement of good protection against fires, disasters and emergencies at the outermost regions of the country.

One of the main parts of control and priority activity of NFSPPS is the prevention work, especially the work with children and youths. Research works of NFSPPS are performed by the Research Institute for Fire and Emergency Safety /RIFES/, which makes accredited testing in the field of fire resistance of substances and materials, their combustibility, fire and explosion hazard etc.
