On 16-19 of February maj. Tomasz Zweglinski, Prof Marcin Smolarkiewicz and Capt. Grzegorz Beltowski from MSFS as part of a consortium took part in organizing and carrying out High Level Coordination Course in Vienna.

 HLC was realized within the EU Civil Protection Mechanism in the 13th training cycle. In the current training cycle the consortium of Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) from Germany, Civil Protection Department of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Interior, and the Netherlands Institute for Safety (IFV) organizes HLC, HLCR – High Level Coordination Refresher (planned in May 2016 in MSFS) and HOT – Head of Team courses.

High Level Coordination course is one of eleventh courses within the training programme provided by the European Commission for the national civil protection experts within the Mechanism. The content of the course consists of issues like coordination and crisis management on the strategic and political level and humanitarian assistance during international civil protection missions. The course programme encompass negotiations, management, legal framework and cooperation with media within international and intercultural environment. Apart from theoretical classes the participants undergo two days full scale exercise simulating the emergency of flood in Pakistan.

MSFS is the only institution in Poland, which within a consortium provides the EU Mechanism training courses since 2005. There were 50 courses realized and nearly 800 civil protection experts trained from all the Mechanism member countries since then. Recently MSFS has won a tender for realization from 6-8 HLC and the new CND (Course on Negotiations and Decision-Making) courses within one training cycle from 2016 to 2020. The Romanian General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations (IGSU) is a new member of the consortium and took place of the Netherlands Institute for Safety. The member countries of EU Civil Protection Mechanism consist of 28 EU member states and Iceland, Norway, Montenegro, Serbia and Macedonia (Turkey has signed an agreement of inclusion to the Mechanism).
