The project aims to improve the preparedness of civil protection professionals and volunteers acting at the Romanian–Hungarian border area through strengthened coordinated action and capacity building and through developing a cross-border informational system that enhances its coordinated reaction capacity.
The objectives are:
- Developing cross-border civil protection cooperation and interoperability by creating a locally coordinated cross-border group of 7 institutions and organizations that will exchange information and develop common intervention procedures in the context of 2 workshops and 3 roundtables, during 11 months.
- Supporting capacity building in emergency preparedness for at least 15 institutions and organizations from Hungary and Romania, in the target area (including local volunteer groups) that will participate at 5 training sessions and 4 small scale exercises during 11 months of the project implementation.
- Developing a cross-border informational system by planning and creating a Local Resource Database and Communication System (LoRDaCS) for dynamic adjustment of response capacity in case of disasters.
