ESB enhances collaboration with ECHO on simulation exercises and training

ESB’s Activation and Coordination Support Unit (ACSU) travelled to Brussels, at the request of ECHO, to attend the joint workshop of the European Commission Training Policy Group and Modules Working Group on 8 June. Following the discussions held in Brussels, the EU Civil Protection Mechanism plans to develop internal Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the use of the Virtual OSOCC in disasters, training and simulation exercises, as well as to strengthen collaboration with ESB to synchronize disaster response training and simulation exercises. A follow-up discussion between ESB and ECHO is expected to take place in late July 2017.
