Within the DIRECT project, a Conference on Importance of Cross-border and Regional Cooperation was organised in Ostrava on 23-24 October.
The Conference gathered around 60 representatives of institutions and organisations dealing with protection and rescue and emergency management in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and Montenegro. The aim of the Conference was to enable exchange of experiences and good practice models in the area of disaster risk reduction – DRR. During the Conference, the participants presented various benefits from international cooperation in this area including implementation of joint projects, establishment of joint teams, support by the European Union in using modern intervention techniques and provision of humanitarian aid assistance.

The Conference was organised within the project DIRECT – DIsaster REsilient Communities and Towns funded by the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) of the European Commission (DG ECHO) implemented by FORS Montenegro and the Directorate for Emergency Management of the Ministry of Interior of Montenegro, in partnership with the Protection and Rescue Service of the Municipality of Kranj from Slovenia, Fire and Rescue Brigade of the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic and Czech Association of Fire Officers. The aim of the project is to improve preparedness of local communities, institutions and services for more efficient response to a growing number of natural and man-made hazards.


Main project activities include trainings for rescuers on protection and rescue in case of fires, floods, earthquakes, etc., field rescue exercises, trainings on Disaster Risk Reduction – DRR, development of evacuation plans for schools and local communities, awareness raising campaign related to disaster risks, study visit to EU, international conferences on DRR, etc.

Apart from the main activities, the project will, through strengthening the international cooperation in this area, lead to the exchange of experiences and good practice models, both between the protection and rescue institutions and services and between rescuers who often face the same tasks and challenges in their work.
