Abstract One of important state development aspects is ensuring even and stable development. Production being developed, big industrial objects being built at the regional level, there also appear problems related with great industrial accidents, assessment of such accident risks, as well as with accident risk reduction activities. Despite the remarkable technical and scientific progress in the safety field, there is an inherent risk in industrial establishments, where dangerous substances are produced or stored. In the article the assessment of possible regional catastrophes and the analysis of prevention management system are made on the example of Rezekne district. From the point of view of risk assessment, there are various dangerous objects in the territory of Rezekne district: the district is crossed by international railways and highways; there are several hydropower stations, as well as petrol and gas filling stations in the territory of the district. The aim of the paper is to make the analysis of existing threats and elaborate the methodology for creating systems of regional threats, as well as for elaborating the civil defence plan. In the article the analysis of certain local authority condition has been made and proposals for improving the system of civil defence activities have been put forward in the context of regional technogenic safety.
