Extraits du point de presse des membres de l'équipe européenne de la protection civile de retour de leur mission de deux semaines à Haïti
On 27 January 2010, the members of the EU Civil Protection team who had just returned from their two-week mission in Haiti, held a press briefing to describe the situation on the ground and how their mission was conducted.
Two weeks after the devastating earthquake, urgent needs remained in the areas of shelter, water and sanitation, food and health. Around 200,000 family tents were needed to support 1 million people. EU Member States had so far sent over 1,000 tents that could accommodate 7,600 people. 24 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland , Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom) had provided assistance to Haiti through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism including urban search and rescue (USAR) teams, medical teams and supplies, shelter, water sanitation units and hygiene articles. The EU Civil Protection team was continuing to support European teams on the ground in their work. For example, it facilitated the coordination between the B-Fast (Belgian) field hospital and the Italian field hospital to optimise the immediate treatment of patients with multiple fractures and assisted Germany in finding transport for 30 tonnes of equipment to three different locations. Together with the United Nations, the EU team was carrying out assessments in Léogâne, a town near Port-au-Prince that was heavily affected by the earthquake.
The EU Civil Protection team in Haiti is working with Member States to facilitate the delivery of European assistance with 24 European countries involved in the relief effort and channelling assistance through the Civil Protection Mechanism. The team is composed of experts from Italy (Team Leader), Denmark (Deputy Team Leader), France, Sweden, the Netherlands and two liaison officers from the Commission's Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC). The MIC, operated by the European Commission in Brussels, is the operational heart of the Community Mechanism for Civil Protection. It is available on a 24/7 basis and is staffed by duty officers working on a shift basis. It gives countries access to the community civil protection platform. Any country affected by a major disaster – inside or outside the EU – can launch a request for assistance through the MIC.
The amount of EU financial support awarded or requested for transport of assistance to Haiti under the EU Financial Instrument for Civil Protection is more than 3.2 million euro.
