Providing a methodology and training on how to perform intitial wide assessment after a disaster (ASR-1) as mentioned in the INSARAG guidelines.

BELICE starts from analysing the state of the art (through cases studies) by top senior experts. A Manual on ASR1 is elaborated and applied in a ToT Course.

BELICE Project planned to carry out four field training courses, concerning the themes of the Manual. The purpose of one of the courses, called Pilot for ToT (Training for Trainers) is the training of personnel who will train the operators involved in emergencies. The COVID emergency didn’t allow to deliver the training courses in presence and so project activities have been redesigned, the Pilot for ToT has been delivered in webinar for the theoretical methods while virtual reality Apps and supporting video tutorials have been produced so to partially substitute the field activity.

Outcomes are:

  • Operational and non-operational actors are able to apply a methodology to perform ASR1;
  • A common operational plan is carried out involving trainees from USAR teams, CP authorities and disaster managers;
  •  INT USAR teams participating in the courses are trained in a realistic scenario.

More information about objectives, outcomes and results are described in the video on the right.
