EURACARE Flight and Shelter - Europe's new evacuation capacity

Brussels, Belgium, 05. March 2018

Johanniter Germany is leading the EURACARE Flight & Shelter project, which is designed to evacuate and provide assistance to European citizen affected by disasters inside and outside the European Union. Our JOIN member from Finland and Hungary are also involved in the project.

The EURACARE Flight & Shelter team trained their capabilities to evacuate people during the last ModEX in Tinglev, Denmark, where these images were taken (see video). Last week, the EURACARE Flight & Shelter was registered in the Common Emergency Communication and Information System (CECIS) of the European Commission as deployable, multi-national module within the Union Civil Protection Mechanism to support consular authorities on request.
