Project: Improving the capability of the Romanian and Serbian authorities of reacting in emergency situations
Three study visits to Romanian border towns - Resita (single visit) and Timisoara (two visits) of the representatives of Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Serbia
Experience has proven that the geographical area covered by the project is subjected to series of risks, which could have impact on the life, health and material loss of the neighbouring population, as well as the environment. Considering that such emergency situations extend beyond territorial borders, a joint and integrated approach and cooperation of authorities responsible for the management of emergency situations is vital.
The key to preparedness in all situations, but most especially in emergency situations is reliable data. This project intends to establish a warning system that will be relevant for both sides involved in the project. Establishing a viable forecasting and warning system requires a combination of data, forecast tools and trained forecasters. This project aims to put in place all these elements.
Various trainings in the use of the identified system, documented procedures for work and reaction will go further to increase capacity of responsible authorities to make decisions and intervene in emergency situations.
