425 views

On 12 November 2013, Simon Horner, Adviser to the Director of the Humanitarian and Civil Protection Operations Directorate of ECHO, explained the tasks of the Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC) working around-the-clock to monitor the situation in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan hit the country and to coordinate help. The ERCC, operated within ECHO, the European Community Humanitarian Office, has been set up to support a coordinated and quicker response to disasters both inside and outside Europe using resources from 32 countries participating in the Civil Protection Mechanism. With a capacity to deal with several simultaneous emergencies in different time zones, around-the-clock, the ERCC is a coordination hub facilitating a coherent European response during emergencies helping to cut unnecessary and expensive duplication of efforts. It collects and analyses real-time information on disasters, monitors hazards, prepares plans for the deployment of experts, teams and equipment, and works with Member States to map available assets and coordinate the EU's disaster response efforts by matching offers of assistance to the needs of the disaster-stricken country.
