Participation to MODEX.EU 2010 exercise

Back from the first MODEX.EU exercise for Medium to Heavy Urban Search and Rescue, Urban Search and Rescue under CBRN conditions and CBRN detection and sampling.

Imagine an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 has struck in K-land. The damage is huge. Aftershocks are expected. An EU civil protection team is on its way to assist the local emergency management authority.

Their first priority will be to set up an On Site Operations Coordination Centre. Initial response is focused on search and rescue and medical assistance.

Setting up an OSOCC, a challenging experience; I had the chance to experiment some of the wonders of information management techniques.
