Study visit to institutions of the protection and rescue system in Italy


In order to learn about EU good practice models in protection from natural and other disasters and emergency management, a study visit to Italy was organised from 4 to 6 December 2017 for representatives of the protection and rescue systems from Montenegro, Czech Republic and Slovenia. During the visit, 16 participants learned about the organisation of the protection and rescue system in Italy, ways of functioning of different institutions and services, experiences and lessons learned in coordination of specific disasters.
During the three days of the study visit, the following institutions were visited:
- Civil Protection Department of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers of the Italian Republic
- National Fire Corps – Firefighting Training Centre
- Civil Protection Department of the Capital of Rome
- Ministry of Defence of the Italian Republic
Within the visit, several meetings and presentations with representatives of the above-mentioned institutions were organised which significantly contributed to the improvement of knowledge of participants. In addition to that, all representatives expressed their wish and readiness for continuation of international cooperation in this area.

The project DIRECT is funded by the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) of the European Commission (DG ECHO) and 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.
