What is the DISASTER Training Program?
Large scale scenario based training is expensive and time consuming. The DISASTER training programme offers an alternative cost efficient method, which can be used whenever the first-responders want. This program is a direct result of the work of the FP7 project DISASTER.
The training/simulation program has been designed in order to give the opportunity to first responders, to train their competencies, more precisely, their communication and emergency handling skills. Communication and information/data sharing in major cross border incidents are complex and challenging. If first responders are well trained, they will be more likely to respond effectively and rapidly. This also means that they will be more likely to save lives. As saving lives is one of the most significant purpose for first responders, we know that this training program will be relevant to societies within the EU.
