This Erasmus+ project started in November 2022. Together with 7 partner organisations from Germany, Greece, the Czech Republic and Poland, we will develop and test digital teaching materials and methods for the education and training of rescue workers in the coming years.

The international cooperation partnership will focus on the exchange of experiences, best practices as well as the creation of innovative learning materials that address the topic of surveillance and crisis management in the study programmes of future professionals working in different areas of the integrated rescue system.

Crisis situations and their management are part of everyone’s everyday life. Fires, floods, inundations, chemical and radiation hazards, terrorism and other natural or social emergencies require well-prepared experts in their field. With ongoing climate changes and extreme weather conditions, natural disasters are occurring more frequently and with greater severity ‘according to the United Nations.

The preparation for, monitoring of and subsequent management of such crisis situations require complex training of members of the security forces and an integrated rescue system that includes paramedics, police officers and firefighters.

The exchange of experiences as well as the creation of updated digital teaching material in this field, suitable for the transition to digital education in the 21st century, is a key added value of the overall project plan.

The project aims to produce a set of digital training materials suitable for the professional training of paramedics, firefighters, members of security forces and emergency services. The project aims to analyse the current state and needs of professional training in this field in the participating countries, after which rich, high-quality digital educational content will be created, adapted to the current situation of disasters and crises, focusing on innovative approaches and methods of crisis management, technological monitoring of crises, analysis of security risks and planning, organisation, implementation and control of activities related to relevant disasters.
