A 4 day UC course was recently completed in the AEME region. Taking place in Sicily and involving participants from the UK, Italy, Abu Dhabi and Map Action. The old town of Poggioreale which was destroyed by an earthquake in 1968 provided the perfect backdrop to undertake assessments using the Kobo toolbox, with resultant information being fed into the coordination cell in order to plan and allocate resources. All participants now have a greater understanding of how coordination saves lives and their role in the various structures that may be set up in support of an affected country. Our thanks are extended to all course instructors, and colleagues from THW, Italian Fire and Rescue Service, and regional/national Civil Protection for providing tremendous support and making this course such a success.
