The WP 1 “Developing and establishing multinational CPMs focused on floods (flood rescue using boats – FRB) involving all Beneficiaries in line with the EU technical framework and practices” includes
- Drafting of a general description detailing the core requirements for a flood rescue using boat (FRB) team/modules based on the general requirements set forth by the Union Civil Protection Mechanism.
- Assessing available resources in the area of FRB (equipment, personnel), response structures (legal basis and response plans) and existing preparedness activities (education, trainings, exercises) taking into regard all levels (local, regional and national capacities).
- Developing of FRB team concepts for each Beneficiary composed by up to 12 persons according to the prior identified needs as a basis of the multinational modules concept for the Region.
- Setting a multinational module, composed of FRB teams coming from 3 or 4 Beneficiaries.
At the end at least three national teams can be composed to build ONE multinational module fulfilling the requirements for a FRB module. Those multinational modules, including the equipment (procurement, handling, storage, maintenance and handover) will form part of a regional emergency response capacity, which can be deployed inside as well as outside of the region. In the future the modules could become part of the European Emergency Response Capacity (EERC) (regulatory reference Decision No 1313/2013/EU of the European Parliament and the Council of 17 December 2013 on a Union Civil Protection Mechanism)
