Fire departments and maritime safety agencies may soon be empowered to take command of the military and police in emergency situations.
That is just one of the changes being considered in a set of revised bills spurred on by last month's ferry disaster.
The Ministry of Security and Public Administration also said government safety inspectors may be granted power of the judicial police in an effort to boost safety management.
The revisions, which also include the establishment of a new deputy prime minister, and the formation of new safety and personnel ministries under the Prime Minister's Office, will be formally announced Thursday.
After gathering public opinion on the changes, the bills will go to the National Assembly for a vote.
