Commissioner Georgieva attends civil protection exercise in France
12/06/2013  - 

Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva is attending a large-scale, two-day European exercise in civil protection near Lyon, France, together with Manuel Valls, the French Minister of the Interior.

The exercise will bring together specialised teams from six Member States. It will test and strengthen how they cooperate in responding to a major disaster and provide assistance through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.

Based on several scenarios, the exercise will simulate a complex terrorist attack and the reaction of the national authorities and their international counterparts joining the response.
