Policies and Programmes in DRR
Every Year, the Institute organize different events:
•an annual National meeting of Resilience in Civil Protection;
•3 seminars about Resilience at University or other organizations;
•courses and training courses for volunteers and professional rescue teams.
In all the seminars the Resilience we are going to speak about the importance of Communication during a Crisis or Emergency. We always talk about the importance of 112 as the unique number for the rescue service, not only for emergency calls but also for organizing rescue operations in a multidisciplinary contest. We have a wide vision about this, not only a unique European emergency number, but about a unique emergency operation centre that can merge together the emergency planning and the emergency operations. Perhaps we are looking too far ahead, but it is the only way to build a resilient community. I It is having also mean a resilience emergency centre where it would be possible to have prevention (emergency planning) and rescue (emergency management) together.
At the moment, I don’t have documents or material about our seminars in English, but if you want I can send them to you in Italian.
