Local civil protection authorities have forwarded 2,230 requests for the temporary accommodation of people who lost their homes, including 880 that are a priority.
Forty-nine families have been temporarily accommodated in state-owned flats, that is 124 persons whose homes were damaged or destroyed in the 29 December magnitude 6.2 tremor.
Speaking at a cabinet meeting, Medved said that by adopting a conclusion to write off energy bills and the public broadcaster’s licence fee for households in Sisak-Moslavina County and Pokupsko and Kravarsko municipalities in Zagreb County, the government was showing social responsibility towards the people affected by the disaster.
We are confident that measure will help at least in part in these days, he added.
All the branches of the civil protection and homeland security system are doing their job, Medved said, singling out firefighters for responding to 337 calls to remove damaged chimneys, repair roods and secure damaged buildings, among other things.
Since Monday, 49 tonnes of food, 21,000 litres of water and 20,000 hot meals have been distributed, and 451 services of psychosocial support have been provided.
