Trainings in the field of chemical and biological rescue, technical and road rescue, water rescue and preparation to the international rescue cooperation

The Georgian fire service as well as services responsible for crisis management are still being formed. Their organisational units need an exchange of expertise and model practices to follow. The Georgian fire service mainly focuses on fighting fires and to a small extent on removing the effects of road collisions. During the project’s implementation, fire service representatives became acquainted with the organisation of the system of fire protection, crisis management and civil protection at the regional and national level in Poland, and at the international level throughout the European Union.

Trainings in the field of chemical and biological rescue, technical and road rescue, water rescue and preparation to the international rescue cooperation

The project was implemented from 1 January to 31 December 2013. The main objective was to strengthen and improve the efficacy of the rescue services, crisis response and civil protection, and to improve the management of rescue services, public administration and local government in the Kakheti region.

Four training sessions were organised under the project for fire fighters and representatives of local authorities in the Kakheti region. The topics involved were:

  • the chemical and ecological rescue system,
  • the technical and road rescue system,
  • the water rescue system,
  • international cooperation in terms of rescue systems, civil protection and crisis management.

Thanks to the training, the work of firefighters has become safer and more effective. The improvement of public safety and the state of the natural environment also indirectly benefitted the residents of the Kakheti region.

The project’s implementation helped to raise the efficiency of the local authorities in terms of crisis management, improve safety in the event of natural or manmade disasters and protect the environment.

As a result of the project, firefighters and representatives of local authorities from the Kakheti region improved their knowledge and skills. The participating firefighters passed their knowledge on to their colleagues back home. Altogether, the training was attended by 42 people – firefighters and representatives of local authorities from the Kakheti region.
