A team of PPRD East 3 experts from Italian Red Cross are working together in the pilot area of Soroca in Moldova to support IGSU in the mapping of their local capacities as well as implementation and development of emergency response plans using EU tools and primary collected data, through a replicabile methodology.
They worked on activation cascade, interagency coordination including involvement of academia, and improvement of collaboration procedures in the planning process.
The mission followed precious field visits, connecting the initial assessment and the introduction of Early Warning and Early Action to the future steps of the planning process.
21-25 November, PPRD East 3 experts from Emergency Services of Finland Pelastusopisto and The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency Myndigheten för samhällsskydd och beredskap (MSB) conducted a Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM) operational course in Kuopio, Finland. We were honoured to have participants from all our partner countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine with us during the intense and informative days of training.
The course led to an increased understanding of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism and the EU Civil Protection Team deployments, combining theoretical and practical knowledge.
During the field phase of the exercise, there was cooperation with the Finnish Technical Assistant and Support Team (TAST) course which increased value and added depth to the course.
