From 4 to 9 April, the second EURACARE Flight & Shelter training course took place in Styria (Austria). Johanniter Germany was accompanied by JOIN members from Finland and Hungary.

EURACARE Flight & Shelter is a prevention and preparedness project of DG ECHO (European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations). It contains a multinational aerial (medical) evacuation capacity with attached shelter component for consular assistance. The Slovak Samaritans, the Government of Styria and the Slovak Government Flight Service are involved in this project as well.

The appointed Desk Officer from the European Commission visited the course as observer and was fascinated about the capabilities of the Johanniter and the project.
