Auxiliary systems and facilities will be planned and built according to law. Security forces will be rationally distributed to deal with major criminal cases and security accidents. The capabilities to handle emergencies and terrorism will be raised. As required by law, fire fighting equipment and facilities will be improved and fire-fighting forces will be reasonably stationed to prevent fire emergencies.
