Official opening of the European Emergency Response Centre with the participation of José Manuel Barroso

106 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the official opening of the EC's Emergency Response Centre (ERC) at Rue de la Loi 84/86. In his speech the President underlined that the Centre was a prime example of how "more Europe" brought added, practical and tangible value to dealing with the challenges the EU was facing. In Europe, on average every year 10 000 people were tragically killed and 15 billion Euro of damage caused by natural and man-made disasters.
The ERC would play a central role to reduce this terrible toll and better protect Europe's citizens. Its core function was to bring together the collective knowledge and capacity of the Member States. The Centre would also support the Commission's humanitarian interventions and would be able to provide specialist services across the EC during emergency situations.
