European Module for Oiled Wildlife Emergency Response Assistance (EUROWA Module)

The project aims to develop a so called Module (experts and their equipment) for international Tier-3 oiled wildlife response in Europe. In the various project streams the project will:

• Develop a Standard Operational Procedure (SOP) for the mobilisation and activities of the new Module

• Develop a professional training course allowing a pool of European Experts to develop knowledge and skills at a competency level that would qualify them to become a member of the new Module and be able to form part of an international response team.

• Provide this training course in the second year of the project

• Maintain and ensure the availability and mobilisation preparedness of equipment as part of the Module.

• Test the new Module as part of an international exercise.

• Submit the Module for registration in CECIS.

The project will deliver the Module as part of a Tier-3 response concept, including a group of experts from different European countries that can populate the Module according to the needs of a requesting party
