Project status

The project is finalized.

Activities were carried out and the project results were reached.

Main achievements of the project include:

One high resolution SE-EBS-EDX microscope was purchased by LB.

County/district emergency inspectorates were endowed with specialized CBRN equipment which included 3 rapid CBRN boats purchased by B2 and 4 CBRN containers and 4 mobile platforms purchased by B3.

The two national emergency inspectorates, partners within the project, agreed to further jointly intervene in case of CBRN emergency situations on the Danube and signed the Protocol for collaboration.

The operational toolbox (practical operation of D-EMERSYS) which includes operational procedures and joint intervention plan for the cross border-area, was elaborated.

The Hintbook, which provides essential information and guidance for field coordinators of interventions, based on which decisions can be taken with respect to selection of best means for intervention, was elaborated.

Five training courses were organized by the project partners.

Several planning conferences and technical meetings were organized between B2 and B3 representatives for preparing the common simulation exercises which took place in September 2018.

Information and publicity activities were permanently implemented. LB and B2 elaborated promotional materials, including the project website available at the link
