Emergency Preparedness and Response in the Western Balkan Region

 
Emergency Preparedness and Response in the Western Balkan Region

Description

The aim of the project is to provide the Western Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia) with operational, ‘state of the art’, tools to support them in making arrangements for, and managing (in a more timely, reliable and coherent manner), any future radiological or nuclear emergency that may affect the region.
This will be achieved by: the installation of a ‘state of the art’ decision support system (DSS) in the emergency centre of each country; customising them to national conditions; linking them in real time to national radiation monitoring networks, EURDEP and to meteorological data; and bringing the systems into full operational use. The project will comprise three main elements: firstly, supporting the installation and customisation of a decision support system in each country; secondly, training in their use and maintenance, including table top exercises; and supporting the development of a concept of operations and procedures for the integration of the DSS into the wider national arrangements for Emergency Preparedness and Response.
