“RESISTANT” aims to build the first European Crisis Training and Knowledge Sharing Platform to train first responders through threefold comprehensive training: educational training with the state-of-the-art knowledge in safety, including tools for the characterization of hazards and associated risks, operational training on mock-up real scale transport, and innovative virtual reality training reproducing the entire accident scenarios, intervention strategies and tactics, including the whole chain of command and communications between all members of the first responder’s team, facility managers, and public (e.g. volunteer firefighters, school children, citizens with disabilities).
“RESISTANT” will also put in place a virtual ‘agora’ for first and second responders, academia, market practitioners, volunteers, and other civil protection stakeholders to share knowledge and exchange best practices, especially in cross-border crisis management. The ‘agora’ will facilitate discussion and contribute towards the development of a common prevention and protection culture.
