“Workshop on the exercise design” in Rome

The two-day “Workshop on the exercise design” in Rome has been finished successfully. It was hosted by the Department for International Relations of the Dipartimento Protezione Civile (Italian Civil Protection Department), one of the consortium partners of Lot4. Our CEO, Harald Maierl-Fellner participated in the meetings representing publiComm.

The scenario of the first exercise to train three EUCPT-TAST teams in Wicklow County, Ireland, will be massive forest fires, which are common in their area of Ireland.

The scenario of the second exercise on the island of Tenerife will be a simulation of an advisory mission of a volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands.

The approach of an advisory mission exercise will, in contrast to a response mission exercise give the possibility to test all European Civil Protection (EUCPT) members and the Technical Assistance Support Teams (TAST) at multiple levels with different stakeholders in a realistic and functional environment conscious exercise and a safe environment.

The main goal of an advisory mission is to provide a framework for capacity building to prevent and prepare for future emergencies.
