Dragon62-17-1-300x205.jpg

The Interreg IVA MIRG-EU project brought together fire fighter teams from Kent (UK), Pas de Calais (FR), Ghent, Antwerp and Beveren (BE) and Zeeland (NL). All partners set up their MIRG, developed standard operational procedures and acquired compatible equipment.

By doing a large scale exercise, the teams have demonstrated they are ready to operate at sea, to contain on-board incidents, that they can assist one another and take over operations when necessary.

In MIRG-EU the teams will take the next step: working according to the European Civil Protection mechanism.
