HRT participates in "STRONG" project

Date: 12/09/2022
HRT participates in

First responders play a prominent and essential role in the everyday situations of all civil society; and among all services they provide are law enforcement, fire suppression, and emergency medical services (EMS). a fast and adequate response to emergencies in all three services can escalate rapidly and emergency responders might be able to do something to stop it if they get there in time.

In case of big disasters, they also need to work with interdisciplinary teams and coordination. They everyday activities involve a lot of stressful situations and communication with subjects with special needs. It also involves a many soft skills like decision making, teamwork or stress resilience.

First responders are under the need of continuous training; and that training can be provided under many tools. STRONG project proposes a serie of online courses that tackle the training need of first responders under a transversal approach; the courses are grouped by theme, not by type of first responders. The main aim of this project is to provide first responders a serie of basic skills to be able to provide an effective response to a serie of circumstances. The online courses are complemented by a digital tool to create an European Network of First Responders. Through this tool they can connect; share experiences; best practices and foster cooperation among first responders team at european level. The challenges they face are usually not circumscribed to a sole territory, so it is crucial to promote the cooperation at European level.

The Hellenic Rescue Team participates in the STRONG project by providing its experience and expertise from Search and Rescue operations.
