- Nov. 17, 2010 -
2010 was one of the devastating years with the highest number of natural disasters within the past 30 years. 725 extremely weather phenomena caused billions of Euro damage and thousands of peoples life. Natural catastrophes do not respect national borders. Flooding, fires, landslips and earthquakes cannot be prevented from happening but a good prevention can help to save lives and reduce economic damage. 2001 EU Member States decided about the so called community procedure in order to coordinate disaster management and civil protection better. The European Commission installed the Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC) to forward distress calls quicker. The European Commission try to facilitate the cooperation between Member States in the field of civil protection in order to speed up the resources of Crisis Management. Therefore they built national, bi-literal and multi-literal modules. In practice responsible authorities have to manage disaster preparedness management plans and multi-national teams. At the European Conference for Disaster Management 22nd – 24th of November 2010 in Berlin experts will exchange their experiences concerning civil protection and present newest developments in the field of crisis management. It is about the improvement of cross border corporations and disaster preparedness management plans as well as the best usage of EU financial instruments.
