Emergency Response.

Topic : Enhanced security and safety, Measures for Securing Borders

Budget : CHF 1'006'995

Project phase : Phase 1

Description : The project will consistently contribute to the EU border protection. The Emergency Response Training will build capacities of the relevant administrations (hospitals, police, public administration, border police), and train future trainers who should ensure the dissemination of the know how at a later stage.

Background : The eastern border is for Poland the most important borderline to be secured. An increased security threat coming from the neighbouring countries has been monitored and can impact on EU security as well. If a security accident is not properly managed by all security operators involved it could rapidly turn into a catastrophe with dramatic consequences for the population. Trainings on crisis management (terrorism attacks, epidemiological threats, etc.) to relevant local decisions makers and operators at the borders are impellent in order to coordinate and harmonize procedures and standards in crisis response.

Objectives : Streamline the functioning and closer cooperation pertaining to the emergency response between appropriate services and entities of both government and local government administration in the EU eastern border areas:

-Streamline cooperation between services

-Expanding coordination mechanisms

-Strengthening cooperation and know-how knowledge

-Formulating needs as regards updating
