Participation of Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC, at an exercise of the EU Civil Protection, simulating a natural disaster that caused a train accident

Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, went to Salzburg to participate in an EU financed disaster control exercise focusing on landslides - a major risk in Austria.
Nearly a thousand rescue workers were involved in the simulated disaster, called "EU Taranis 2013". More than half were from Austria's national organisations, with expertise in fire-fighting and water, cave and mountain rescue. Teams were also provided by Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Croatia, Netherlands, Romania and the Czech Republic.
The exercise mirrored the recent record flooding in Central Europe. This made the simulation even more relevant to improving the cooperation between EU Member States and members of the Civil Protection Mechanism.
The scenario for the exercise was that long-lasting massive rainfalls in the western parts of Austria, especially in the Province of Salzburg, lead to regional floods, landslides, mudslides, rock-falls, combining with an extreme flood caused by mountain melt-water.
