European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations

Strengthening cross border and inter-sectorial operability (START)

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.
