Contemporary civilisation is inherently accompanied by diverse disasters, industrial accidents, infectious diseases and increasingly frequent terrorist attacks, especially those arising from religious beliefs. Those phenomena will unfortunately keep happening as civilisation and modern industrial branches develop, even though increasingly advanced protection means are developed and deployed. The risk of occurrence of unexpected emergencies connected with the use of chemical, biological or radiation substances requires constant hazards monitoring by the State Fire Service (SFS). The paper presents a review of statistical data pertaining to the SFS interventions with respect to the above mentioned types of hazards. The executed quantitative and qualitative analysis of potential hazards allowed determination of the most frequent hazards occurring on the territory of the Republic of Poland. The binding legal regulations provide that the SFS is the leading service for counteracting those hazards, and therefore it is of importance to monitor hazardous factors and to foresee any change trends. The review takes into account statistical data for chemical and radiological hazards from the years 2013-2017 and biological hazards in the years 2015-2017.
