ESENet – Emergency Services Europe Network
The improvement of the European capability to respond to everyday emergencies and guarantee the safety and security of citizens in case of major emergencies and disasters requires a significant step forward in the integration of existing systems at several levels.
The efficient response to everyday and major emergency situations needs a greater level of interoperability between Emergency services in many different aspects of the process. Such needs range from the ability of communication devices to interoperate to the ability of systems to exchange data and information up to the harmonization of procedures and policies.
It is evident that decision makers (e.g. political authorities), users (e.g. first responders) and industries can all contribute with solid arguments in this scenario. On the other hand, it is also clear that a credible answer to such needs cannot come from a single community.
The ESENet (Emergency Services Europe Network) Coordination Action aims at establishing a network of stakeholders in the Emergency Management domain that will identify, discuss and agree on needs, requirements, new technologies and best practices in responding to everyday as well as to major emergencies.
