Incident command organization

Decision-making, planning and tasking activities at the various coordination and command levels that are involved in managing a certain crisis event. 

The organization of the control system in an accident aims to satisfy the most urgent needs and to use precious resources without duplication or waste. The main role of the Command system is to establish planning and management functions for the partners who respond to work in a coordinated and systematic approach.

The aim of the incident command organization should focus, depending on the type of situation, on organizing to sustain safe operations, anticipating avoiding the collapse of the resources, on the coordination for a decision-making process distributed between different actors and on the creation of certainty using strategies of resilience.

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

Registration

This years Practitioner Forum will focus on the subject of "Training". The forum will introduce selected innovative approaches from practitioner organisations from the Danube Region with the aims to facilitate discussions about solutions, challenges and needs between experts and stakeholders, also to generate project ideas.

Two subjects will be tackled in 40 minutes long break-out sessions:

Session 1: Training of spontaneous volunteers and professional responders

Objectives of Session 1:

  • trigger discussion between different organisations about their approaches towards the training of volunteer and professional responders
  • identify good practices and training methods to improve training efficiency for spontaneous / trained responders
  • share practices regarding the different training systems for volunteers and professional responders of the Danube countries

Session 2: National, regional and international trainings

Objectives of Session 2:

  • share practices and experience regarding the different training approaches at national, regional, international level;
  • trigger discussion about regional level disaster preparedness and response activities, compared to national and international systems
  • identify good practices at national and international trainings which can be implemented at regional level
  • exchange ideas about potential standardized training requirements at regional level
