The aim of the course was the acquisition of basic knowledge related to disasters as phenomenon, as well as the main players and mechanisms in disaster relief in order to facilitate the use of SEEBRIG tool, namely the Engineer Task Force – ETF, in such operations.
METT delivered presentations about theoretical foundation of disasters and new disaster environment and lectures related to NATO Civil Emergency Planning and EU Civil Protection Mechanism and continued with practical workshops. For this part of the course SEEBRIG HQ Nucleus Staff was divided in syndicates and tasked to asses the main physical, technological and human induced hazards upon a fictitious scenario. The syndicate works concluded with developing a FRAGO for ETF in order to mitigate the effects of the identified risks.
Disaster Relief Operation Course was considered a great success both by instructors and students which improved their knowledge related to the topics presented by Mobile Training Team.
