Union Civil Protection Mechanism Exercises

The Civil Protection Work Programme 2018, in its Action 2.6, provides the framework for the implementation of the priorities set up in the legislation for the exercise programme:

The objective: To improve civil protection preparedness and response to all kinds of disasters, including marine pollution, forest fires and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN) disasters, as well as combined disasters, climate-change induced disasters, and disasters simultaneously affecting a number of countries (inside or outside the Participating States of the Mechanism) by providing a testing environment of established and/or new operational concepts and procedures of the Mechanism and a learning opportunity for all actors involved in civil protection assistance interventions under the Mechanism.
