ADRIATIC 2018 TTX exercise was held in Split, Divulje Center for Specialized Training from 20 to 21 March 2018.
This exercise was based on the same scenario as for the ADRIATIC 2018 civil defense field exercise, which will take place from 21 to 25 May 2018 - tanker and ferry crash due to poor weather conditions, with the immediate consequences of fires and marine pollution, whose severe effects require international assistance through the activation of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism.
The aim of this exercise was to train management staff and national contact points for interventions within the Union Civilian Protection Mechanism, through activity simulations. The exercise was focused on the international team’s activities and co-operation with the local forces, the National Headquarters and the civil protection system stakeholders.
Participants of the exercise were the representatives from the partner countries of the project - Slovenia (Protection and Rescue Directorate and the Management Board for Maritime Affairs), Montenegro (Ministry of the Interior - Directorate for Emergency Situations, Montenegro Maritime Safety Directorate, Rescue Service Herceg Novi and Rescue Service Kotor), Croatian Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, Croatian Coast Guard and DG ECHO (The Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations), alongside representatives from the Swedish Agency for Emergency Situations (MSB) and the Safety Zone Zeeland from the Netherlands.
