Lead partner of MIRG-EU is Safety Region Zeeland. The Safety Region is the regional organisation for crisis management. The safety region brings the fire department, regional medical care and the management of larger incidents and crises under one roof. All activities aim at the increasing safety of the people in the province of Zeeland. From prevention and preparation to actual intervention. In the province of Zeeland dozens of ships navigate daily on the river Scheldt. With its changing tidal currents and narrow, winding shipping lanes a treacherous water way. Well trained forces are needed to protect crew, citizens and environment. Not only on the river Scheldt, but also in its adjoining ports and on the North Sea. The safety region brought together a partnership that uses this project to effectively and efficiently take a next step in maritime safety.
