About the project

The project was initialized after Directors General for the Civil Protection in Baltic Sea Region created a Joint Position on Enhancing Cooperation in Civil Protection Area in 2017. Increasing involvement of the local authorities and civil society organizations was defined as one of the recommendations in that joint position. The project is directed by Ministry of The Interior of Finland and funded by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland. It´s carried out by The Finnish National Rescue Association (SPEK) in co-operation with Danish Civil Protection League, Frederiksborg Fire and Rescue Service and Liepaja Municipal Police/Union of the Baltic Cities. Civil protection covers a wide spectrum of activities involved in protecting a civilian population in the event of natural or man-made disasters. Civil protection includes prevention, planning, preparedness, response and recovery from disasters.
